Abstract:

The study was carried out in Bhilwara district of Rajasthan state with a sample of 140 wheat growers to study the adoption status of herbicide use for weed control in wheat crop. The data revealed that the adoption status of herbicide use was at moderate level. Majority of respondents had fully adopted the recommended dose and method of herbicide application. The variables e.g. education, Scientism, socio-economic status, knowledge level of farmers about herbicides, extension contact, mass media exposure and weed infestation were found significantly associated with adoption status of chemical weed control in wheat crop.
