Abstract

Efficient transfer of innovations and their practical application to field situations is the key to economic development of India. Still there exists a wide gap between the technology available at the research level and its adoption at farmer's level. Keeping this in view; an attempt has been made to know the overall adoption of SRI technologies. The study was conducted in Cuddalore District of TamilNadu. The study revealed that half the proportion (50.67 per cent) of respondents had medium level of adoption followed by 38.00 per cent of the respondents who had low level of adoption. Only 11.33 per cent of the respondents had high adoption level. Out of eight major recommended nursery practices of SRI technology, maximum adoption level was found towards seed treatment with one packet of azospirillum and minimum adoption was observed towards application of 0.5% urea to enhance seedling growth. The study revealed that out of eleven major recommended main field practices of SRI technology, maximum adoption level was found towards first weeding at recommended time and minimum adoption was observed towards maintenance of 5 cm height water level.
