Abstract:
The technological gap between existing and recommended technologies of Green gram (Summer Season) Pulse Crop was studied during 2014-15 among 100 respondents. It was found a majority that among all practices of green gram cultivation, thiram (82%), rhizobium culture (80%) as far as technological gap possessed by the respondents was concerned. The practice insect/pest measures (65%), improved variety sheela (64%), Type-44 (57%), improved variety pusabaisakhi (56%), recommended dose of fertilizers (53%), disease measures (49%), improved variety K-4 (48%), first ploughing done for cultivation (33%), recommended seed rate (19%), best time of harvesting (18%), intercultural operation (13%), irrigation management and best time of sowing each (03%). The overall technological gap index was calculated to be 42.86%. The respondents were facing constraints in terms of adopt a rank of first were agreed with the statements that “High cost of chemical fertilizers” is the common problem, followed by “Lack of knowledge about high yielding varieties” at ranks second, “High labour cost” at rank third, “Lack of post-harvest management” at rank fourth, “Lack of proper information” at rank fifth, “High transportation cost” at ranks sixth, “Lack of interest viewing the new practices” at rank seventh, “Lack of knowledge about insect/pest” at rank eights, “Lack of knowledge about disease” at ranks ninth, “Lack of education” at the ranks tenth, “High cost of different varieties of seed” at the ranks eleventh, “Lack of skilled labour” at the ranks twelfth and “Lack of storage facilities” at the ranks thirteen, respectively.
