Present study was conducted in the ten carnation growing districts (except Kinnaur and Lahaul & Spiti) of Himachal Pradesh with the objective to find the technological gaps in the production and marketing practices of carnation. The study was conducted using quasi-experimental design. The sample selection was done by proportional allocation method and it makes the sample size of 123 respondents. Regarding profile of the respondents it was observed that majority of the respondents (60.48%) were having middle age group and educated up to high school (40.32%). Majority of the respondents (33.87%) have an experience of 5-10 years in carnation cultivation and 35.48 per cent having an annual income of 50,000-1,00,000. The overall technology gap of the carnation growers was found low (18.92%). Maximum mean technology gap (30.62%) was recorded in the adoption of plant protection measures followed by the practices regarding harvesting and post harvesting handling of carnation (27.46%). Talking about individual practices, maximum technology gap was found in the use of recommended methods and doses for pulsing and holding of carnation flowers.
