Abstract

The lack of transfer of technology from research system to the client system is the main problem in increasing agricultural production in the developing world. Still there is a wide gap between attained technical know-how and its utilization in the field of common farmers. Number of steps have been initiated by the central/state government to boost-up the production of oilseeds. Government of India launched frontline demonstration programme for oilseed crops under auspicious of oilseed mission. It has played significant role in increasing the production of groundnut by the farmers. Keeping this fact in view study conducted with a sample of 120 groundnut growers’ of both demonstrator and non-demonstrators representing 46 village of Junagadh and Rajkot districts of Gujarat state of India. Data shows that about 16.67% of demonstrator and 11.67% of non-demonstrator had high level of knowledge about recommended groundnut production technology. majority of demonstrator (65.00%) and non-demonstrator (58.33%) groundnut growers had medium level of knowledge about the recommended groundnut production technology and characteristics of the demonstrator farmers such as education, land holding, social participation, extension participation, mass media exposure, risk orientation, irrigation potentiality, crop intensity, were positively and highly significantly associated with the knowledge of recommended groundnut production technologies.
