AN ANALYSIS OF DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ADOPTERS AND NON-ADOPTERS OF HIGH YIELDING VARIETIES OF RICE AMONG SMALL FARMERS

Small farmers constituting about two-thirds of the rural households mostly cultivate rice. Adoption of high yielding varieties (HYVs) of rice is one of the ways to increase average rice yield of an individual as well as total rice production of the country. However, as individual characteristics may differ between adopters and non-adopters of HYV rice. the present study was undertaken in order to analyse the extent of differences between adopters and non-adopters of HYV rice among small farmers. The findings indicate that very few differences in the individual characteristics exist between the adopters and non-adopters of HYV rice, Small farmers as a whole, therefore, can be considered as a single category for conducting extension work without segregating them into different categories on the basis of their adoption and non-adoption of HYV rice.
