Abstract:

A study was conducted to analyze the factors associated with knowledge and adoption of sheep husbandry in Rajouri district of UT of Jammu & Kashmir. The test of significance showed that adopters had higher socio-economic status as compared to non-adopters. The test also proved that there was a significant difference between adopters and non-adopters regarding knowledge about sheep rearing and that adopters had more knowledge than non-adopters. 46 per cent adopters and 30 per cent non-adopters had high socio-economic status whereas 40 per cent adopters and 36 per cent non-adopters had medium socio-economic status. Also, 14 percent of the adopters and 34 percent of non-adopters had low socio-economic status. 90 per cent of adopters had good knowledge about sheep rearing compared to only 18 per cent in case of non-adopters. 50 per cent adopters reared sheep only to earn money, 8 percent for good quality of manure and 2 percent for meat. Among the major reasons for non-adoption of sheep husbandry were lack of space (39%), lack of finance (33%), lack of improved breeds (24%) and susceptibility to diseases (17%).
