Abstract:

The present investigation was conducted in Bharatpur Region of Rajasthan state, India during the years 2014-15, 16-17. Bharatpur Region was purposively selected for the present investigation due to the following reasons: Rajasthan is rank first amongst all the states of India in terms of both area and production of rapeseeds-mustard. Rajasthan state comprises of tenth regions. In Rajasthan, the rapeseeds and mustard crop is most popular oilseeds crops cultivated in Jaipur, Alwar, Bharatpur, Dholpur, Karouli, Sawai-madhopur, Sriganganagar, Jhunjhunu and Sikar Districts. In this state, its grown on area of 25,32,330 hectares with an annual production of 32,57,987 tonnes and productivity of 1287 kg/ha. in the years 2015-16. Rapeseed-mustard is the most important oilseeds crops grown in rabi season in Bharatpur Region of Rajasthan. Bharatpur Region occupies first rank in area, production and productivity of rapeseed and mustard crop amongst the oilseeds crops in tenth regions of Rajasthan. It’s mostly grown in five selected Districts of Bharatpur Division of Rajasthan. This region has covered 7,49,597 hectares of land. Whereas, an annual production of rapeseed and mustard crop is 10,07,502 tonnes which is very high 1344 kg/ha. as compared to average national productivity in years 2015-16. DRMR:-Directorate of Rapeseed-Mustard Research station is located in near at Sewar, Bharatpur Region of Rajasthan in India. Therefore, DRMR, Sewar under Bharatpur Region was purposively selected. Front Line Demonstrations (FLDs) are being laid out regularly by the DRMR Scientists on the various farmer’s field to demonstrate the production potential of rapeseeds-mustard technologies. All the recommended Practices were provided to the selected farmers. An exhaustive list of mustard growers from each selected KVKs was prepared in this way 25, beneficiary farmers and 25, non-beneficiary farmers were selected from the list available at the each KVKs head quarter. Thus, total 50 mustard growers were selected from each KVK by used the simple random sampling technique. Thus, these obtained lists, the 125, beneficiary farmers and 125, non-beneficiary farmers were selected regarding Recommended Mustard Production Technology in Bharatpur division. Thus, total sample sizes were consisted of 250 mustard growers from the present research study by using simple random sampling technique through proportionate. Responses were recorded in quantitative form through pre-structured interview schedule technique on the 250 selected respondents. The present study was undertaken in Bharatpur Region of Rajasthan State, to find out that the extent of adoption among-st the mustard growers on a sample size of 250 respondents. The study highlights that the maximum number, more than half of the respondents were found the total majority of farmers 136 (54.40 %), the majority 70 of the beneficiary farmers (56.00 %) and the majority 66 of the non-beneficiary farmers (52.80 %) were having from medium level extent of adoption groups category. Further reported that the highest extent of adoption exists in package of practices likes “Seed rate & recommended spacing” and “Irrigation management” hence, it were ranked first and second. Further recorded that the medium extent of adoption in package of practices likes “Fertilizer application”, “Soil & field preparation”, “Seed treatment”, “Time of sowing”, “Weed management”, and “Harvesting/threshing & storage” were ranked Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh and Eighth in ranks order. Further observed that the significant association for Education level, social participation, extension participation, Source of information utilized, Economic motivation, and Irrigation potentiality had positively and significantly associated with the extent of adoption. On the other hand, non-significant association for age, size of land holding and risk orientation had negatively and non-significantly associated with the extent of adoption. It indicates that the beneficiary farmers had higher extent of adoption as compared to non-beneficiary farmers amongst both the category of farmers regarding recommended mustard production technology.
