Abstract:
Green gram is the third important pulse crop of India grown in nearly 8 per cent of the total pulse area of the country. it is designated as “poor man’s meat.” The present study attempted to estimate the extent of adoption of improved production technology, impact of the green gram technologies on employment and income pattern, the yield gap of green gram crop. Total 144 growers from 13 clusters were selected for the study. The result showed that the recommended land use was adopted by green gram growers to the extent 95.83 per cent. sowing distance contributed 99.31 per cent at the highest level followed by sowing time (90.97 per cent), preparatory tillage (80.09 per cent) and seed rate (73.96 per cent) were the highest in case of green gram growers but the irrigation was almost negligible. The employment was increased by 21.28 and 31.58 per cent in low to medium and medium to high level of adoption while, the income increased by 13.08 and 20.19 per cent. The results concluded that the employment and income was increased from low to high adopters. The returns of Rs. 5332.54 were added in medium adopters as compared to low adopters, while the returns of Rs. 9307.83 were added in high over medium adopters. The IBCR was estimated to 1.26 and 1.73 for medium and high adopters, respectively. There exists a yield gap of 48.73 per cent in green gram production. Bullock labour, machine power, P fertilizers in case of green gram were highly positively significant at 1 per cent level of significance indicating that these are the important variables for which output is responsive. Therefore, it is recommended that farmers may adopt these technologies at the maximum level to improve the productivity of green gram.
