Author(s): Poonam and MK Jhariya

Abstract: The present study was designed to assess the socio-psychological, economical and technological feature and its overall impacts on the adoption of banana farming community in Durg district of Chhattisgarh. The data was gathered from two selected blocks i.e., Dhamdha and Berla of Durg district and a sum of 150 banana growers were selected on random basis for generating the information as per the objectives of the investigation. Majority of the farmers interviewed had medium level of scientific orientation and medium level of overall knowledge regarding recommended banana production technology. Majority of the banana growers had medium contact with extension personnel, medium utilization of information sources. Banana growers had utilized drip irrigation method for banana production. Majority of the banana growers had medium adoption of recommended banana production technology. Correlation analysis was done and it was found that the variables land holding, annual income, credit acquisition, scientific orientation, level of knowledge and irrigation method positive and significant correlation with adoption of recommended banana production technology. Occupation has significant but negative correlation with the adoption of recommended banana production technology. Multiple regression analysis was also done to find out the quantum of contribution of the different variables in adoption of recommended banana production technology and it was found that the scientific orientation, irrigation method and level of knowledge had positive and significant contribution toward adoption of recommended banana production technology. Only one variable i.e. occupation showed negatively significant contribution towards adoption of recommended banana production technology. There is an urgent need to improve banana growers’ education and knowledge level through providing education and training, skill, demonstrations, fieldtrips and proper technical guidance. The skill demonstrations on use of various practices of banana crop may therefore be helpful in increasing the adoption of recommended banana production technology.
