Adoption of any technology is finally putting the new practice or idea into use which is the last stage of the adoption process. Present study was conducted on keeping in view the adoption of sprinkler system of irrigation by the farmers in the Jhunjhunu district of Rajasthan. A total of 160 farmers were selected out of them 80 adopters and 80 non- adopters were constituted the sample size. The respondents were interviewed with the help of structured interview schedule. Medium level of adoption was found among majority of the respondents. The reason behind this was low knowledge level of the respondents, some climatic economic and technical constraints were also identified. Among different practices, adoption of distance between nozzles was ranked first while the adoption of the area under sprinkler system was found at the bottom. Adoption index was used with modification for measuring extent of adoption.
