J.P.Yadav

Abstract

Watershed is as geo-hydrological unit or a piece of land with a common drainage point, implying that all the rainwater failing within watershed flows through one or more natural courses and converges at a common point and the adoption means use of recommended new agricultural technology in watershed areas on a continuing basis. There are so many factors which creates variations among farmers in adoption of watershed technology. It was observed that positive and significant correlate was found between extent of adoption of BFs (beneficiary farmers) and NBFs(Non-beneficiary farmers)about watershed technology and training received by respondents, their social and extension participation, farm mechanization , herd size and knowledge index whereas age of respondents and their education was negatively correlated with their extent of adoption of watershed technology. The negative and significant association was observed between extent of adoption of watershed technology by BFs and their size of family and size of land holding but in case of NBFs, occupation was negatively and employment status was positively correlated with extent of adoption of watershed technology. It was also observed that total ten independent variables of BFs jointly contributed 83.12 per cent variation while in case of NBFs 86.62 per cent exerted influence in the extent of adoption of watershed technology
