Various technological innovations have been released claiming spectacular yield potential at research stations. As a result of this research and transfer of technology programmes, the national production has increased over time in the decades, thus balancing the population growth and food production of our country. Only few studies are available on the transfer of technology of banana growers. Hence, the present study was formulated to understand the technological needs of banana growers of Cuddalore district. The study was conducted in Cuddalore district of Tamil Nadu state Cuddalore district has seven taluks. Banana is being grown in all the seven taluks.

Six revenue villages viz., Vellakarai, Ramapuram, Annavalli, Vazhisothanaipalyam, Karaikadu and Thirumanikuzhi occupied the first six places under banana cultivation. Hence, they were selected on the basis of maximum area under banana cultivation.A sample size of 120 was fixed for the study. The respondents in banana cultivation expressed high level of technological needs in the major subject matter areas of farm implements (3.600), plant protection (3.389), fertilizer management (3.341), plant growth regulator (3.183), post – harvest management (3.166), weed management (2.975) and varieties (2.950)
