|Abstract:||The study was conducted during the year 2015-16 in the Bastar district of Chhattisgarh state. The Chhattisgarh consists of 27 districts, out of which Bastar district was purposively selected for the study because maximum area covers the tuber crops in the area. In Bastar district there are 7 blocks namely Jagdalpur, Bastar, Bakawand, Tokapal, Darbha, Bastanar and Lohandiguda.Out of which 2 block Bastar and Bakawand was selected for the study. Four villages from each block were selected for the study and fifteen respondents from each selected village were considered as respondents. Thus in this way total 120 respondents were selected for the study. The data were tabulated and analyzed with the help of suitable statistical tools and methods. The findings of this study revealed that Most of the farmers (40.00 per cent) had illiterate and had participate in one organization. The respondents had medium annual income and majority of the respondents (20.84 per cent) most of the farmers taking loan from the co-operative societies for the short term loan. The study also reveals that Maximum number of the farmers had agriculture as the main occupation and had small size (Upto 2.5 – 5 acres) of landholdings.The findings reveal that Maximum number of respondents (65.83 per cent) had moderately attitude towards recommended tuber crops production technology and source of communication. Results reveals that yield of adopters of technical interventions were increased every year. As far as results also shows that none of the farmers are fully technical efficient, so more number of inputs like seeds and fertilizers are increased for achieving maximum technical efficiency range. The findings reveal that there are two marketing channels are used by the tuber growers: 1.Channel I: - producer – consumer 2. Channel II – producer –village merchant – wholesaler-retailer- consumer Results revealed that maximum number of the respondents (60.84) had medium level of innovativeness and 37.50 per cent had irrigation source are not available and maximum number of the respondents (42.67 per cent) use river as the irrigation sources. An analysis of Practice wise level of knowledge towards recommended practices for all tuber crops results showed that the maximum number of respondents had high level of knowledge towards selection of land followed by preparation of land. While irrigation schedule, time of sowing, planting distance, intercultural operation had medium level of knowledge towards recommended tuber crops production technology. Results indicated that maximum number of the respondents had high extent of adoption toward selection of land and harvesting while sowing time, planting distance, manure and fertilizer application, and irrigation schedule had medium level of knowledge towards recommended tuber crops production technology. The coefficient of co-relation between Landholding, source of communication, innovativeness and technical intervention and attitude were found to positive and highly significant. The remaining variables were found non-significant. Regarding multiple regression analysis, revealed study two variables viz. attitude innovativeness and occupation were found to be contributed significant towards recommended tuber crops production technology at 0.01 and 0.05 level of probability respectively. Remaining variables are non- significant with the recommended tuber crops production technology. The important socio- personal constraints faced by the respondents per cent lack of education under socio-economic category faced by the (52.50 per cent ) respondents were unavailability of lack of seed and fertilizer in well in time..In case of technical constraints, the respondents reported lack of recommended production technology (60.00).In case of psychological constraints the maximum respondents expressed lack of risk bearing capacity (51.66 per cent).In case of market and storage related constraints maximum no. of respondents (65.00 per cent) reported that the lack of minimum support price for tuber crops. In addition to lack of storage facilities was also reported as a constraints by 38.33 per cent of respondents in adoption of recommended tuber crops production technology. In case of transportation related problem 52.50 per cent reported as lack of storage facilities as major constraints in adoption of recommended tuber crops production technology. Result reveals that maximum( 62.50 per cent) suggested that Govt. should be formulated better policies for tuber crops, followed by planting material should be provided well in time (65.00 per cent), extension agencies should be organized training programmes for the tuber crops production technology(37.50), processing industry should be developed by the Govt.(53.33 per cent), market should be regulated by the Govt. for tuber crops(63.33) and lastly procedure for providing loan should be simple and easy(48.33 per cent|
