Abstract:

Biofertilizers are used to improve the fertility of the land by using biological wastes and biological wastes do not contain any chemicals which are harmful to the living soil. Junagadh Agricultural University developed biofertilizers; Rhizobium, Azotobacter, Phosphate Solubilizing Bacteria as ‘Gir sawaj’ trade name. There is great need to increase farm production to overcome the requirement of food for increasing population without damaging the environment. The more use of chemical fertilizers is harmful to living soil and therefore use of biofertilizers are required which improve the soil fertility without any harmful effect to the soil. In the light of above facts, the study was carried out with objective to measure attitude of farmers towards use of biofertilizer. The study was conducted in Rajkot district with 60 “Gir sawaj” brand biofertilizer users. The study revealed that majority (61.66 per cent) respondents were from medium attitude level group followed by 21.66 per cent and 16.67 per cent were from high and low level of attitude towards use of Gir sawaj biofertilizer respectively. The characteristics of the respondents namely land holding, farm mechanization index, innovativeness and scientific orientation had positive and highly significant relationship with attitude about ‘Gir sawaj’ biofertilizers. It means that attitude of respondents increased significantly with increase land holding, farm mechanization index, innovativeness and scientific orientation. There was negative and significant relationship with attitude about ‘Gir sawaj’ biofertilizers with age of respondents. It clearly indicates that mostly young age people had positive attitude about biofertilizers and biopesticides.
