Abstract

Present study aims to find out how the technological interventions performed under the Farmer FIRST programme
by assessing the peak adoption level and time taken to attain it. ADOPT tool was used to assess the impact of the
technological interventions. Thirty farmers who have participated in the programme implemented at Haryana, India, were interviewed during 2021 to elicit data pertaining to the year 2016–21 and the modal value of their responses were used as input in the ADOPT model to estimate the parameters of interest. The results showed that the extent of peak adoption level is high for interventions related to cereal crops and animal components while the time taken to reach peak adoption level is also low indicating that the advisory system for these commodities have borne good results and this calls for streamlining the advisory system for horticultural crops to achieve the desired output from these enterprises as well.
