Abstract:

Present study was conducted in Basmat taluka of Hingoli district. Ten villages having highest area under food grain crops were selected for the study. From each village, 12 respondents were selected randomly, who stored food grains to their home and godowns. Thus a sample of 120 respondents was selected for the study. The data was collected through personal interview method with the help of structured schedule. The data was statistically analysed with the help of frequency and percentage. Through this study it was revealed that most of respondents (60.84 per cent) had medium level of adoption about recommended grain storage practices, while 22.50 per cent and 16.66 per cent had low and high level of adoption about recommended grain storage practices respectively. Regarding constraint lack of proper training (90.83 per cent), non-availability of separate space for storage (80.83 per cent) and due to poor economical condition grain is sold (70.83 per cent) were the major constraints encountered by the respondents in adoption of recommended grain storage practices.
