Abstract:

The present study was conducted during the year 2018-19 in West Jaintia Hills District, Meghalaya. Out of total eleven districts in the state, West Jaintia Hills District was selected as this district has the highest area under turmeric cultivation. Laskein block and Thadlaskein block of West Jaintia Hills District were purposively selected for the study and multistage sampling procedure was followed. Turmeric growers were randomly selected from six villages by using stratified random sampling with proportional allocation method making a total sample of 120 respondents for the study. Correlation analysis between technological gap and characteristics of the turmeric growers revealed that variables such as annual income, mass media exposure and risk orientation were negatively significant with technological gap at 0.05 level of significance. Education, extension contact, economic motivation and innovation proneness were negatively significant with technological gap of the turmeric growers at 0.01 level of significance.
