The study indicates that the amount of land-holding is positively related with the adoption of new technology, especially those, which are costly. Secondly, the friends, kins and neighbours influence such adoption. The influence by institutional sources is still marginal. Further, the behaviour of tribal farmers in adoption of technology is not much different from that of non-tribals.
The study also indicates that the farmer in "small" category has responded well like the "large" ones, because their economic status has allowed them to test the new technologies.
The study also shows that higher number in packages is higher the rate of adoption. It can be argued that as the number in the packages increases the cost of the packages escalates. Therefore, the marginal farmers allege against the "costly practice".
