Abstract:

The study was carried out during the year 2010-11 in hyper arid partially irrigated western plain zone IC of Rajasthan with simple size of 316 respondents; they were cultivating clusterbean for last 5 year. To know the knowledge status of clusterbean growers and to find out the relationship between socio-economic and personal characteristics of the respondents with knowledge level about recommended production technologies of clusterbean Results highlighted that majority of the respondents were running their farm operations with poor infrastructure facilities however, less than 12.00 percent respondents had very high level of infrastructure facilities of the total respondents. The study revealed that majority of respondents had medium knowledge. Cultivators possessed technology wise high knowledge about irrigation and water conservation practices, sowing time, seed rate and method of sowing and used of improved seed. The farmers were possessed very little knowledge about application of culture, seed treatment and recommended spacing practices in respect to clusterbean technology, regarding technology wise knowledge. Among the personal and socio-economic characteristics of clusterbean growers majority of the respondents were moderate extension contacts, cosmopoliteness and small to medium level of land holding, educated upto primary to secondary standard whereas, more than half of the respondents were in middle aged group ranging from 36 to 55 years, partial irrigated farming conditions and material possession. While, 58.86 percent respondents fell in low degree of cropping intensity. Study further revealed that about two-third majority (73.41%) of the respondents belonged to medium level of socio-economic status. Whereas, majority of the respondents were running their farm operation with poor agricultural infrastructure facilities. Nine variables were included in the study, only one i.e., age of respondents was found negative and significant associated with their knowledge about recommended technology of clusdterbean cultivation. However, remaining eight variables namely education, landholding, socio-economic status, extension contact, cosmopoliteness, material possession, cropping intensity and agricultural infrastructure facilities were found to be positive and significantly associated with their knowledge level about recommended production technology of clusterbean.
