Abstract:

The present study was undertaken to assess and compare the knowledge of improved maize production and post harvest technologies among farmers and farm women and constraints faced by the farm families in adoption of maize production technologies of maize. The study was conducted in two purposively selected districts viz. Udaipur and Chittorgarh of Agro-climatic zone IV A of Rajasthan. Two panchayat samities from each district were selected purposively and three villages from each panchayat samiti were selected on random basis. Thus, there were total six villages from each district and total 12 villages from both the districts. Fifteen farm families from each village and 90 farm families from each district were selected. One male and one female member of the farm family who was actively involved in maize cultivation was included in the sample. Thus, total sample for the present study was 360 respondents (180 farmers and 180 farm women). The interview schedule consisted of four sections i.e. personal characteristics of the respondents Constraints in adoption of improved maize production technologies by the farm families. The most important constraint faced by farm families was damage of maize field by the blue bulls due to absence of proper fencing (96.11 MPS). The other constraints faced by the farm families in adoption of improved maize production and post harvest technologies were high labour charges (93.06 MPS), unavailability of labour and fragmented land holdings (91.11 MPS), high cost of farm implements (87.50 MPS), agricultural inputs (83.89 MPS).
