Abstract


The findings revealed that 105 (52.50%) of total pea growers were found to be from
medium adoption level group, whereas, 43 (21.50%) respondents were reported from
the group of low adoption level and 52 (26.00%) respondents were in the high adoption
level. The study further revealed that 23.00 per cent marginal farmers were in the high
adoption level and 28.00 per cent marginal farmers were in the low adoption level,
while 49.00 per cent marginal pea growers were found in the medium adoption category.
In case of small farmers category it was observed that 15.00, 56.00 and 29.00 per
cent respondents had low, medium and high level of adoption, respectively about pea
production practices in the study area. It was noted that the extent of adoption in
marginal farmers was from 23.70 to 73.20 per cent, while in case of small farmers the
extent of adoption was from 30.37 to 74.12 per cent in all improved pea cultivation
practices. Further it was found that small farmers had more extent of adoption than
marginal farmers but there still exists a gap in the adoption of improved pea cultivation
practices. The findings indicated that there was significant difference between marginal
and small farmers in adoption of improved pea production technology. Hence, it is
concluded that there was significant difference between marginal and small farmers
in adoption of improved pea production technology.
