Abstract:

Chickpea is one of the most important pulse crops of Gujarat state. In Gujarat, Saurashtra region is one of the most remarkable regions for chickpea cultivation and production. Junagadh district of Saurashtra region is very good producer district. Due to consider the importance of knowledge as a major aspect behind the yield of chickpea production, the present research work was conducted to study the level of chickpea growers’ knowledge about recommended chickpea production technology through ex-post facto research design. Four talukas; Maliya, Keshod, Mendarda and Junagadh of Junagadh district were purposively selected for the research. Total three villages were randomly selected from each selected taluka and 10 farmers were randomly selected from each village. Thus, total sample size was 120 farmers. Level of knowledge was measured through teacher made knowledge test. The structured and pre tested interview schedule was prepared for the collection of information about knowledge level of chickpea growers. The study revealed that majority of the chickpea growers (68.3%) had medium level of knowledge, followed by 27.5% had high level, 2.5% had low level, 1.7% had very high level and none of the chickpea growers had very low level of knowledge about recommended production technology.
