Abstract:

The present study was conducted in Agricultural Zone Sopore, Baramulla district of Jammu and Kashmir state. Five villages were selected purposively on the basis of maximum chilli growers present in these five villages. From these five villages respondents were selected by using proportionate allocation method for the study. Thus, total 100 farmers were selected for the study. The “Ex-Post-Facto” design of social research was used for investigation. The findings indicated that, (62.00%) of growers were in medium age group, (31.00%) educated up to high school level, (57.00%) belonged to medium size of family comprising 6-10 members,(64.00%) belonged to Joint family, (33.00%) were possessed land holding ranging upto 10 kanals, (84.00%) possessed 0.5-1.5 kanal of land holding under chilli cultivation, (52.00%) had agriculture as their main occupation, (54.00%) were having annual income upto Rs. 1 lakh, (57.00%) were having 6-10 years of experience in chilli cultivation, more than half respondents (62.00%) were observed utilising medium sources of information,  (60.00%) had medium scientific orientation, (53.00%) had medium level of economic motivation and (42.00%) had low extension contact about improved chilli cultivation practices. As regards the relationship of the socio economic profile of the growers with knowledge of recommended package of practices, in case of independent variables viz. education, occupation, total land holding, experience in chilli cultivation, sources of information, scientific orientation and economic motivation were found positively and significantly related with the knowledge level of growers at 0.05 per cent level of probability. Family size, family type, land under chilli cultivation, annual income and extension contact had no significant correlation with the knowledge level and age was found to have negative and significant correlation with the knowledge level of chilli growers.
