Abstract:

The awareness for vermicompost production for soil health as well as for entrepreneurship development was created among the rural population of Chittorgarh district of Rajasthan by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Chittorgarh through Front Line Demonstration programmes. The FLD programmes were conducted during year 2015 to 2017 and the study was conducted during year 2018-19. The study was conducted on the beneficiaries of FLD programmes and total 100 farmers were selected randomly. The research design followed in the study was survey research method and the data collected by pretested well structure interview schedule. It is clear from the results that female farmers were more interested to adopt vermicompost (71.79%) as compared to male farmers (55.7%). The independent variables like gender, age, education, caste, income and land holding of farmers were the important variables for adoption of vermicompost technology. The study indicates that KVK, Chittorgarh was able to motivate the middle aged and middle school pass farmers to adopt the technology with the highest benefit-cost ratio (3.50). Therefore, there is need to popularize vermicompost technology among young farmers and SC & ST community for greater upliftment of farming community.
