The pace and pattern of diversification within the agricultural sector, however varies from region to region, as it is contingent on variety of factors such as the prices of different commodities, availability, technology and policy interventions etc. The present study is an attempt to examine the impact of socio-economic variables on the knowledge and adoption of diversified agriculture technologies. The study reveals that the intensity of diversified agriculture with milk production enterprise was inversely related with the farm size. Education, occupation, irrigation potential, social participation and communication behaviour have significant and positive impact upon the knowledge and adoption of improved diversified agriculture.
