ABSTRACT:
The present study was conducted in Raipur Karchulian block of Rewa district (M.P.). The result indicates that majority of the respondents (45%) had medium level of knowledge and (50.83%) majority had medium level of adoption gap regarding recommended wheat production technology. In case of socio-economic factors i.e. education, land holding, annual income, availability of irrigation facilities, and farm equipment had significantly associated with the knowledge and adoption gap in wheat production technology. In this study, the farmers reported that the main constraints for low yields of wheat production had been non availability of improved seed, non availability of timely information, high cost of improved seed, unawareness about improved cultivation practices and high cost of fungicide/ pesticide. Efforts should make for awareness to increase knowledge of the farmers towards latest technology through different information sources and to minimize the adoption gap so that their level of technical knowledge may be increased.
