Résumé
A study on adoption gap in groundnut production in Northern Transition Zone was carried out during the year 2009-2010. Thirty demonstrator farmers and sixty fellow farmers formed the sample for the study. The data was elicited through the personal interview method. The overall adoption gap for demonstrator farmers was to the tune of 41.55 per cent and for the fellow farmers it was 79.90 per cent. The yield gap on the demonstration fields was 23.96 per cent while it was 59.15 per cent between demonstrator and farmers fields. Both the adoption and yield gaps were found to be significantly different between the demonstrator and fellow farmers. Cent per cent of the demonstrator farmers had not adopted recommended Copper Sulphate application. All the fellow farmers had not adopted recommended practices such as application of rhizobium, phosphorus solubilising bacteria, lime sulphate and copper sulphate, control of pest (Spodoptera) and diseases like damping off, fungal neck rot and leaf spot. Education, farming experience, extension contact, mass media utilization, cosmopoliteness, cropping intensity and innovative proneness were negatively and significantly related to adoption gap of demonstrator as well as fellow farmers while age was positively and significantly related to their adoption gaps. Landholding had significant relationship with the adoption gap of fellow farmers. All the independent variables explained 91.90 per cent and 79.20 per cent of variation in the adoption gaps for the demonstrator and fellow farmers respectively. High cost of chemicals and fertilizers (96.67%) and price fluctuation (86.67%) were the major constraints in adoption of recommended cultivation practices of groundnut
