Abstract:
Agriculture Technology Management Agency (ATMA) is a registered society in India with various agricultural activities for sustainable agricultural development in the state, with a focus at the district level. It is a hotbed for integrating research, extension and marketing activities and decentralizing day-to-day management of the public Agricultural Technology Development and Dissemination System. The present study was carried out in the central zone of Uttar Pradesh state to explore the Adoption level of ATMA and Non-ATMA farmers about improved Wheat cultivation technologies. Six villages of Banikodar, a block of Barabanki District were selected. Data were collected through 120 farmers in which 60 ATMA farmers and 60 Non-ATMA farmers with the help of a well-prepared interview schedule. In terms of overall constraints majority of both ATMA (0.82MS) and Non-ATMA (0.92MS) farmers were perceived the constraint ‘high cost of diesel’ ranked first. And other important constraints faced by ATMA farmers along with their mean score showing the seriousness of constraint viz., ‘not availability of seed drill’ (0.76MS), ‘lack of soil testing facility’ (0.48MS), ‘high cost of fertilizers’ (0.48MS), ‘lack of electricity’ (0.39MSthird-a, third-b, fourth and fifth, respectively. Likewise, Non-ATMA farmers along face constraint viz., ‘not the availability of seed drill’ (0.90MS), ‘lack of soil testing facility’ (0.84MS), ‘lack of awareness of seed treatment’ (0.78MS) and ‘high cost of chemicals of seed treatment’ (0.73MS), was ranked at second, third, fourth and fifth, respectively.
