The present investigation was carried out during the year 2016-17 in Bulandshahr district of Western Uttar Pradesh to assess the adoption level of bio-pesticides by brinjal growers in brinjal production. Bulandshahr district comprise of 16 blocks in which two blocks namely Lakhoti and Jahangirabad were purposively selected. Four villages namely Dhakka, Dhakroli from lakhoti block and Shekhpur, Pasoli selected from Jahangirabad block. From the selected each village’s 20 respondents were selected randomly, thus a total of 80 brinjal growers constituted the sample size for the study and data were collected by means of personal interview with the help of pre structured schedule. The study find out that brinjal growers of selected areas were not having proper adoption of bio-pesticides in brinjal production. They were medium level of adoption to summer deep ploughing while they were have low level of adoption of soil treatment, seed treatment, foliage spray in standing crop, light/pheromone traps and bio-agents related practices regarding bio-pesticides. Findings also shows large gap between recommendation and adoption in respect to bio-pesticides. So, it is an argent need of skill oriented training to brinjal growers regarding bio-pesticides for higher and safer brinjal production.
