Abstract:

The present study was carried out in Tripura during 2014-15. A Sample of System of Rice Intensification (SRI) Technology of farmers comprising 150 respondents was selected on stratified random sampling with proportional allocation method. The primary data was collected using pre-tested structured interview schedule. Majority of the respondents 60 per cent had medium in extent of adoption of SRI technology followed by high level of adoption 26.67 per cent and low 13.33 per cent level of adoption. The study reveals that education, annual income, operational land holding, risk orientation, mass media exposure, social participation, source of information, innovation proneness and economic motivation were found to be positively significant at 0.01 level of probability and cropping intensity is found at 0.05 level of probability with their extent of adoption of SRI technology. This indicates that majority of the farmers were in medium and high level of adoption due to having good knowledge and aware of high production in SRI technology as compare to traditional rice cultivation practices.
