Abstract:

The present study was undertaken in year 2014 and 2015 to study the factors affecting adoption of Maize cultivation practices in Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir. There were 160 Gram panchayats, 385 villages and 4 towns viz. Rajouri, Thanamandi, Nowshera and Sunderbani. The district constitutes 8.81 percent of the geographical area of the state. There are 7 revenue tehsils viz; Rajouri, Thanamandi, Nowshera, Sunderbani, Budhal and Darhal with a total of 9 revenue blocks in district Rajouri. Although agriculture is the main occupation of district Rajouri, but the farming community is perceived to be still following traditional agricultural practices. Therefore, the present study was conducted to examine the knowledge, attitude and extent of adoption of improved package of practices for Maize cultivation and to identify socio-economic and personal factors which can affect the adoption of recommended practices of Maize. The study revealed that the majority of the respondents have low level of adoption and have medium level of attitude towards the cultivation practices of Maize.
