Abstract:

Organic farming is gaining popularity all over the world, as it can diversify agricultural production systems towards attaining improved productivity, farm income and food, as well as environmental safety. Hence, the present study analyzes the knowledge level of organic and inorganic paddy growers towards cultivation in TBP Command Area. The major findings indicated that, cent per cent of the organic and inorganic paddy growers had knowledge about recommended varieties (BPT-5204 and Gangavathi sona) for their region as followed by ideal month of sowing in DSR, nursery preparation and manual weed management, while spraying jeevamrutha, use of growth regulators (panchagavya and cow urine), spraying neem oil and cow urine as biological practices of pest and disease management by cent per cent of the organic growers. Whereas, large majority of the organic paddy growers had knowledge about depth of planting (94.44 %) followed by maintaining 2-3 seedlings per hill (86.67 %), purpose of summer ploughing as it reduces pest and disease incidence (85.56 %), optimum depth of sowing in DSR (85.56 %), preventing water movement from one field to another (84.44 %), age of seedling (82.22 %) and maintaining 5.0 cm water level after 10 days of transplanting (81.11 %). Large majority (92.22 %) of the inorganic paddy growers had knowledge about depth of planting followed by control measures for brown plant hopper (91.11 %), control measures for stem borer and leaf folder (87.78 %) and control measures for sucking pests (84.44 %).
