India is one of the world's largest producers of rice and brown rice, accounting for 20% of all world rice production. Rice-based cropping system can be described as mix of farming practices that comprises of rice as the major crop followed by subsequent cultivation of other crops. Intercropping of rice and other compatible crops is also widely practiced in many regions. The study was conducted in two irrigated districts namely Janjgir-Champa and Dhamtari and two rainfed districts namely Korba and Mahasamund in Chhattisgarh Plains. Form the each of the selected districts two representative blocks namely Kurud and Dhamtari from Dhamtari district and Janjgir and Champa form Janjgir-Champa district were selected purposively. Similarly, two blocks Pali and Katghora from Korba district and Mahasamund and Bagbhra from Mahasamund district were selected. It was observed that among the farmers who had irrigation facilities, 23.75 Percent respondents were educated up to middle school where as 29.38 Percent respondents were primary school passed whereas rainfed farmers, the educational profile showed that 24.38 Percent were middle school passed followed by 26.25 Percent respondents passed primary school. Regarding size of family of the irrigated respondents, it was found that 55.50 Percent of the respondents were under large family (>5 members), whereas in case of non-irrigated respondents, 55 Percent of the respondents belonged to large family. From seeing the result, it can be concluded that farmers family size had not found any significance role with adoption of insect pest management practices.
