Résumé partiel
Rainfed agriculture in India has been practiced since time immemorial. Indian agriculture is often characterized as a gamble with the monsoon. A combination of location, rainfall and other climatic factors has rendered rainfed agriculture a low productive activity in India. Sorghum is an important world crop, used for food (as grain and in sorghum syrup or "sorghum molasses"), fodder, the production of alcoholic beverages, as well as bio fuels. Most varieties are drought and heat tolerant, and are especially important in arid regions, where the grain is staple or one of the staples for poor and rural people. They form an important component of pastures in many tropical regions. The HOPE project of rabi sorghum is being implemented in three districts viz ; Beed, Parbhani and Jalna of the state as the area under rabi sorghum is more concentrated in these district. The topic is selected under HOPE project. Hence, this district viz ; Beed, Parbhani and Jalna was purposively selected. Two villages from each cluster will be selected on the basis area under Rabi sorghum. In all 6 villages (2 from each cluster) will select from Parbhani, Beed, Jalna district. The list of farmers selected under HOPE project was obtained from the sorghum breeder for the year 2017-18. 90 farmers will be randomly selected including 30 small, 30 medium and 30 large farmers. 10 farmers from each size group from each district will be selected. Thus, the total sample comprised of 90 sample farm. The classification of farmers on the basis of size of land holding as less than 5 acre, 5.01 to 10 acre and above 10 acre were considered as small, medium and large farmers The information on the area covered under adoption of technologies such as high yielding varieties, manures, fertilizers, plant population, plant protection, physical quantities of key inputs etc was required for estimation of technology adoption level. The HOPE project of rabi sorghum is being implemented in three districts viz ; Beed, Parbhani and Jalna of the state as the area under rabi sorghum is more concentrated in these district.
