High technological gap was found in the practices like use of weedicides (85.00%), seed rate (82.50%), seed bed preparation (80.83%) and use of chemical fertilizer (80.83%) and low technological gap was found with respect to variety (20.63%), use of planofix (20.00%) and seedlings per hill (35.00%).
