Abstract:

Khurasani (Guizotia abyssinica spp.) is considered as an important traditional minor oil seed crop in India, which is mainly cultivated in hilly and tribal areas. Though the crop has high oil content and wide range of utility, very less attention is being paid towards the judicial utilization of the crop by the growers. So, considering this fact the present research work was carried out in Jawhar and Mokhada tahsils of Palghar district of Konkan region of Maharashtra state to know the utilization pattern of Khurasani crop by the growers. The sample was constituted 150 Khurasani growers drawn from two Tahsils. The exploratory research design was used for the present study and the respondents were interviewed with the help of a semi-structured interview schedule. The findings of the research revealed that major portion of produced Khurasani crop (93.90%) was used for oil extraction purpose. More than half of the (52.50%) the extracted oil was used for home consumption purpose. It was also found that majority of the respondents (79.34%) gave all the by-products to the mill owners after oil extraction.
