Abstract:

The present study was conducted in Jashpur district of Chhattisgarh (India) during 2014-15 due to the important vegetable crops and commercial areas. Adoption of the tomato production technology is important for increasing the production level. Hence, this study was conducted to know the adoption level and its relationship with personal and socio-economical characteristics of tomato grower. Information was obtained with the help of personal interview method during the study period. The data were analyzed, tabulated and the results were drawn with the help of appropriate statistical methods like score, adoption index, mean score value, rank, standard deviation and correlation coefficient were calculated. The finding of the study revealed that the overall level of adoption of tomato production technology was medium. Majority of the farmers (68%) had medium level of adoption of scientific tomato cultivation practices. More number of large farmers had high level of adoption as compared to medium and small farmers. The study also revealed that annual income, extension contact, innovativeness, economic motivation and knowledge were found highly significant and positive correlation with adoption of scientific tomato cultivation practices. Should be more awareness programs are organized to increase level of knowledge and adoption of tomato cultivation practices to sustain tomato production in Chhattisgarh.
