Farmers Extent of Adoption of Climate Resilient Agro-technologies: A Recent Study

May 31, 2021 Environment and Earth Science 0

Climate change is the world’s most critical environmental concern, posing substantial dangers to global development, particularly in poorer countries. Climate change has an impact on ecosystems, water resources, food, and health. Global warming is the most harmful effect of climate change. Several climate-resilient agro-technologies have been established under the National Innovations on Climate Resilient Agriculture (NICRA) Project to adapt to change and overcome the challenges of climate change. The current study was carried out in the Lakhimpur District of Assam to assess the extent to which participants and non-participant farmers adopted the climate-resilient agro-technologies provided under the NICRA Project. A total of 160 farmers were questioned, with 80 NICRA participants and 80 non-NICRA participants. According to the findings, the majority of the participating farmers (68.75%) had a medium level of adoption, while 17.50% had a low level of adoption of climate-resilient agro-technologies. Only 13.75 percent of the farmers who took part in the study had a high level of climate-resilient agro-technologies adoption. The majority of non-participant farmers (75.00%) had a low level of adoption, followed by 17.50% with a medium level of adoption of climate-resilient agro-technologies. Only a tiny percentage of them (7.50%) showed a high level of adoption of climate-resilient agrotechnologies. This means that existing project-related extension educational initiatives must be expanded and streamlined in order to improve participant farmers’ awareness of climate-resilient agro-technologies.
