Analysis of field data collected from a sample of 100 part-tenant farmers has brought out findings about influence of tenurial status of land on adoption of improved seed-fertilizer-irrigation technology. Adoption of improved production technology tended to be the highest on owned land followed by cash rented land, crop-share rented land with input cost-sharing and crop-share rented land without input cost-sharing. Thus, the findings lead to suggest that irrespective of rental arrangements the mechanism of land tenancy acts as hinderance to adoption of improved production technology. Inter-rental system comparison reveals that cash renting system is a better mechanism than crop-share renting even if with input-cost sharing. However, input cost-sharing practice accelerated adoption of improved production technology on crop-share rented land.
