Dr. Abhey Singh , Rajdeep Kaur

Abstract


Rotavetor technology  is  a  widely  used  for tillage  operation  because of its superior ability to mix, pulverize  and flatten soil. This technology is very helpful for reduce the land preparation cost and increase the yield. In the present study different factors affecting the adoption level of Rotavetor Technology in Paddy and Wheat Production in Haryana has been explained. Adoption level of the Rotavetor technology has also been checked in selected districts. The Present study was conducted  in Haryana state. Top three Districts of Haryana which have maximum area covered under Wheat and Paddy crops have been selected. These are- Kaithal, Karnal and Sirsa District. Two blocks were selected from the each district  on the basis of same criteria. 10 farmers who used Rotavetor technology for both Wheat and Paddy crops were taken as Adopter from each block. Same number of farmers who did not use this new technology have been taken as Non-Adopter from each block. Thus , a sample of  120 respondents have been selected for the study. The study has revealed various factors various factors like Age, Farm Experience, Education Level, Land Size, Nature of the Family, Source of credit, Occupation that influence the adoption of Rotavetor technology.  The level of education of the farmers  have been found a  positive impact on the new technology adoption decision.  Large farm size farmers adopt more new technology. It has been found that on an average adopters have 19.82 acre land size while it was on an average 7.83 acre land size of non adopter farmers. The study reported that farmers have started to use Rotavetor technology in Paddy and Wheat production from 2005. Adoption level has been increased in year 2008 and 2009.
