Abstract:

The aim of this study was to determine the utilization of existing natural resources of reservoir cage farming practices for enhancing better production of fishes in a limited time. The present study was carried out to document the socio-economic profile, technology adoption practices and constraints faced by the reservoir cage farmers of Khammam district of Telangana state. A total of 120 progressive cage farmers were selected randomly from three reservoirs Palair, Wyra and Lankasagar reservoirs. Age (X1), Experience in cage farming (X6), Participation in trainings (X15) showed significance at 1.00 per cent level and found to be positively correlated. Occupational status (X3), Annual income (X4), Information seeking behavior (X5), Contact with extension agency (X12), and Decision making behavior (X14) had positive correlation at 5.00 per cent level of significance. The estimated R2 value was 0.524 which clearly indicate that 52.40 per cent of the variations observed among the independent variables were explained in the extent of adoption of farming practices by the cage farmers. Constraints constitutes by cage farmers are less market price for pangasius (I), slow growth rate of fish (II) was the most significant constraints by 91.66 per cent, 90.00 per cent of the surveyed farmers.
