Abstract:

Low cost technology offers an excellent opportunity to grow high value crops during off-season with maximum input use efficiency. This has special relevance in the present day scenario of shrinking land and water resources. At Precision Farming Development Centre, NAU, Navsari technologies related to protected cultivation have been developed. These comprise of basically low (naturally ventilated) and medium cost (fan pad cooling system) greenhouses, in which former type does not require power supply or cooling mechanism. Navsari district of South Gujarat was chosen purposively for the study. For this study 100 farmers were considered as a sample and termed in this study as respondents. To know the various characteristics of the respondents a structured schedule was developed. Majority of the respondents had medium level of knowledge about low cost greenhouse technology.
