Abstract:
The study was conducted in Bhiwani district of Haryana state to analyze the technological gap between recommended and adopted cultivation technologies by the chickpea growers. A sample of 120 respondents was selected from four villages and the study revealed that an equally high technological gap was found in adoption of seed treatment and disease & cultural control (66.67%) followed by irrigation requirement (57.50%), chemical pest control (54%) and application of doses of manures and fertilizers (42.50%). It was also observed that the respondents’ age and caste was found negatively and significantly correlated with technological gap in adoption of varieties and further analysis predicted that land holding, farm implements and mass media exposure were found positively and significantly correlated with technological gap in adoption of seed rate. The coefficients of determination (R2) were found 0.302 and 0.032 between personal variables and technological gap in adoption of varieties and seed rate, respectively.
