Abstract:

This study was undertaken to assess the knowledge of recommended practices of chilli cultivation and problems faced by the growers and ex-growers of selected districts of Punjab. A list of chilli growers in each selected village having minimum of half acre of land under chilli was prepared and a proportionate sample of two hundred chilli growers was selected by proportionate random sampling method. In addition to this, all ex-chilli growers were selected from the selected villages. It was found that almost half of the respondents (49.0%) were of the age group 50-62 years, 53.5 per cent were educated up to middle, 54.5 per cent had an operational land holding ranging from 3-12 acres, 61.5 per cent had area under chilli up to 1 acre, 46.5 per cent had annual income up to Rs. 1, 10,000, 58.5 per cent had experience of chilli cultivation ranging from 1-2 years. Nearly one-third (31.0%) of respondents had no extension contacts during last year and 47.0 per cent had medium level of scientific orientation. Above 85% of the respondents had knowledge regarding sowing time, recommended varieties and seed rate. Almost one-third to half of the respondents had knowledge regarding different fertilizer doses, seed treatment, insect-pests and diseases and their control. The major constraints expressed by chilli growers were heavy price fluctuation of the produce and lack of knowledge of raising nursery. The major constraints expressed by ex-chilli growers were comparatively decrease in the production of chilli, intensive requirement of labour at picking and low price at peak time.
