EFFECT OF EDUCATION ON TECHNOLOGY ADOPTION AND AGGREGATE CROP OUTPUT IN BANGLADESH

The study examines the contribution of education on regional technology adoption and aggregate crop output. The results indicate that education has a positive effect on the adoption of irrigation, biological (MV) and chemical fertilizer technology. Infrastructural facilities (road) has significant positive impact on MV adoption. Higher the road availability per hectare of cropped area, higher the adoption of MV. The study reveals that to increase the technology adoption level as well as its utilization to the fullest extent, we need to expand agricultural knowledge oriented education system in the rural areas of Bangladesh.
