The study was carried out during 2013-14 in Meerut district of Uttar Pradesh state to focus on the sugarcane growers regarding impact of knowledge on adoption level of IPM practices. The 80 contact farmers were selected as respondents. The study revealed that the maximum knowledge gap was found to be existing in previous crop residues, crop rotation, hand picking of the insect and their destruction, hot air and water treatment, light and pheromone trap, microbial control, use of natural enemies, resistant varieties, bio-pesticides/ bio-agents, application and dose of different pest etc. The maximum adoption gap was found to be removal of the previous crop residues, inter cropping, crop rotation, hot air and water treatment, hand picking of pest and their destruction, lights traps, microbial control, natural enemies, resistant varieties, use of hormone, seed treatment, soil treatment etc. The result implies that sugarcane growers with more knowledge have more adoption level of cultural, mechanical, biological and chemical methods of IPM practices.
