Abstract:

The present study was conducted in Budgam district of Kashmir to assess the constraints in adoption of recommended agricultural practices in paddy cultivation which helps to provide feedback to the stakeholders of the programme for its improvement. A sample of 150 trained farmers and 50 untrained farmers from two selected blocks and were selected by purposive cum random sampling technique. The majority of farmers covered under the ATMA programme were of middle age group, having middle standard qualification, medium family size (5-8 members) and medium experience in farming (16-25 years).Thus the total numbers of 200 paddy growers were selected. Average productivity of paddy crop in Kashmir is very low and far from the national average yield. By adopting improved and recommended agricultural practices, the production and productivity can be increased. The major constraints faced by the farmers in adoption of recommended Paddy Production Practices were lack of skill in seed treatment (98.88%), lack of technical advice for seed storage (93.33%), irregular visits of Agricultural Officers (94.44%), low rate of Paddy in local market (84.44%), high cost of fertilizers (82.22%), high rate of seeds (72.73%) and inadequate and untimely supply of loans (80%).
