Abstract
Cotton is important fiber crop of India. The present study was conducted in the purposely selected Bhilwara district of Rajasthan. There are total twelve tehsils in Bhilwara district of Rajasthan, out of which, two tehsils namely Mandalgarh and Asind have been selected on the basis of maximum area under cultivation of Bt cotton. Four villages selected from each tehsil were taken on the basis of maximum area under Bt cotton cultivation. The list so prepared, 5 marginal, 5 small and 5 large Bt growers were selected randomly from each identified village. Thus, in all 120 farmers (40 marginal, 40 small and 40 large farmers) were included in the sample of the study. The show that personal characteristics of the Bt cotton growers viz., age, occupation, annual income, size of family, type of family, cosmopolitan outlook, economic motivation, and extension contact were not significantly associated with the adoption level of the respondents about Bt cotton production technology, whereas education played a significant role in adoption of improved Bt cotton cultivation practices.
