Abstract:
Constraints in adoption of mechanization in rice cultivation in Khammam district of Telangana state, study examined the constraints in adoption of farm mechanization in rice cultivation. In total district 120 farmers are selected as sample size. Two mandals, Kalluru mandal and Nelakondapally mandal has been selected. Data collected through interview method. Farmers are categorized into different levels of mechanization like low, medium and high mechanized farms. The findings of this study revealed that in case of resources related constraints, lack of sufficient technical staff (78.34%), lack of awareness of technology (65.69%), poor research–extension–farm linkage (63.38%), inadequate and untimely availability of farm machinery and implements on hire basis, small size holdings were major constraints in adoption of farm mechanization in rice cultivation. So the conclusion is a standard farm machine bank should be made by the government at village level and systematic training programmes should be organize by the government for the maximum adoption of farm machineries for overcome these constraints.
