Abstract:
The study was conducted to know the extent of adoption of factors influencing quality and extent of post-harvest technologies followed by arecanut growers. It was conducted during 2015-16 in Uttara Kannada district of Karnataka. Sirsi, Siddapur and Yellapur talukas of Uttara Kannada District were selected for the study in the view of their highest share in area and the production in the district. The ex-post-facto research design was used to select 180 samples for the study. A well-structured pre-tested interview schedule was used to collect the data through personal interview method and analysed by using frequency and percentage. Large majority of the arecanut growers adopted all the quality and price influencing practices like harvesting of fully ripened nut of arecanut for preparation of ripednuts (98.89 %) followed by sun drying for 40-45 days and dehusking the matured fruits (97.78 %). Further, majority (98.89 %) of arecanut growers had adopted riped nut processing followed by tender nut processing (94.44 %). In tender nut processing an equal percentage (90.00 %) of arecanut growers adopted grading like rashi/bette (without fibre on kernel) and kempgotu (with fibre on kernel). Whereas, in riped nut processing majority (96.67 %) graded their produce like chali (without fibre on kernel) followed by biligotu (93.33 %) and Koka (93.33 %). Related to marketing pattern nearly 44.00 per cent of the respondents sold the produce in TSS while 31.11 per cent of arecanut growers sold their produce in TAPMCS.
