Abstract:

In this study, an in-depth analysis is done with reference to the consumption pattern of fertilizer at Kotli village of R.S. Pura District in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. A total of 79 farmers were randomly without replacement selected and were interviewed with the help of well-structured interview schedule. The findings revealed that majority of the farmers had marginal (<1 ha) land holding and majority of the respondents apply inorganic fertilizers. Majority of the farmers used fertilizers in the granulated form. The quantity of urea, diammonium phosphate and muriate of potash in rice and wheat were applied in more quantity than recommended. Very few farmers gave preference to nutrient composition, brand and price while purchasing fertilizers. Only those farmers which are more educated gave preference to nutrient composition while purchasing fertilizers.
