Author(s): Vikas Raghuwanshi and Dr. Syed H Mazhar
Abstract: The study was undertaken regarding the constraint’s faced by the beneficiary in adoption of organic farming practices of soybean crop under ATMA programme in Guna district of Madhya Pradesh. The sample constituted 60 beneficiaries and 60 non-beneficiaries. Thus a total numbers of respondents for present study were 120. The study indicated non-significant relationship with adoption of organic farming in respect of age, family size, annual income and risk preference. However the selected variables viz. land holding, education, extension contact, social participation, mass media exposer, innovativeness and economic motivation of farmers showed significant relationship with the adoption of organic farming practices by the farmers. Major constraints expressed by the respondent in adoption of organic farming practices of soybean crop were lack of capital, lack of bulk local demand for organic soybean, long process of organic manure preparation, lack of knowledge about bio-pesticides, application time, method and proper dose, lack of published information regarding various practices of organic soybean farming.
