Abstract:

Tripura is one of smallest state among the Indian states. Having a very limited area, Tripura has got a diverse agro-climatic conditions which highly suitable to grow various horticultural crops. Pineapple fruit is widely grown in Tripura and is the fifth leading pineapple producing state of India. So many farmers were directly depends on pineapple for their livelihood years back. But since from few years back the production level of pineapple in Tripura was gradually decreasing and also area under pineapple was shrinking regularly. State horticulture department has implemented many policies to uplift the production level and they go success but not as much as they expected. Therefore a study was planned to know the adoption level of recommended package of practices and various constraints faced by the pineapple growers in two selected districts namely Dhalai and Khowai on the basis of highest and lowest production. Results revealed from the study were that majority (39.58%) of the pineapple growers fully adopted certain recommended practices, i.e grading the pineapple fruit. Further 81.25 per cent of them partially adopted the recommended practices of climate and soil, while 97.92 per cent respondents didn’t adopt the practices like curing of planting material, chemical induction of flowering, proper method of chemical application and insect pest and disease management practices.
