Abstract:

Sugarcane is the most important commercial crop grown worldwide and is cultivated in about 75 countries. Now a days sugarcane cultivation and sugar industry stands as supporting pillar of Indian economy. The study was conducted on 180 sugarcane growers selected from 12 villages from Karnal district of Haryana (India) during the period of 2018. Majority of the respondents were found to have low level of adoption in respect to chemical control of diseases as well as on Integrated Disease Management (IDM) whereas, farmers had medium level of adoption in case of disease control through cultural practices. The co-relational analysis revealed that education, land holding, social participation, socio-economic status, information sources, risk orientation, economic motivation, change proneness and management orientation were found to have positive and highly significant relationship with adoption of integrated disease management in sugarcane, but negative and non- significant correlation was observed with age of the sugarcane growers.
