Abstract:
This study was undertaken in three districts selected randomly from each Zone namely (1) North Eastern Plains Zone (2) Eastern Plains Zone (3) Vindhyan Zone in Eastern Uttar Pradesh. From each selected district, two blocks were selected randomly. Thereafter two villages from each block was selected randomly, thus make a total 12 villages. The majority of respondents were of middle aged and literate including formal and informal education. Highest number of the respondents (55.83%) was observed in the medium category (33 to 44) of materials possession. Majority of farmers (60.41%) had medium level of overall extent of awareness about organic farming practices. The variables like age, family size, material possession and economic motivation, were found positively correlated but not significant with adoption level regarding organic farming practices. The variables like education, caste, family type, housing pattern, land holding, occupation, income, social participation, extension contact, value orientation, risk orientation and attitude were found negatively correlated but not significant with adoption level regarding organic farming practices.
