  • Abstract

The study was designed and undertaken to understand the farmers’ pulse production knowledge gap and to explore the contribution of the farmer with their selected characteristics. Raghdi Union of Muksudpur Upazilla of Gopalgonj District was purposively selected as the locale of the study. As research instrument an interview schedule was prepared, pretested, corrected, modified and then multiplied for data collection. Data were collected by the researcher herself from randomly selected 112 pulse farmers from three villages of the selected union. Knowledge gap of the farmers in pulse production was dependent variable and selected characteristics of the farmers were independent variables. Finding revealed that about two third (64.3%) of the respondents had medium to high knowledge gap in pulse production. Stepwise multiple regression analysis shows that out of 10 variables only 3 such as education, farming experience and economic motivation had negative contribution on knowledge gap in pulse production and they combinetly explained 45.8% knowledge gap and the rest of the variables do not enter into the regression model.
