Orange is one of the major horticultural crops in Arunachal Pradesh. The agro-climatic conditions of West Siang district suits the production of orange crop. A research was conducted during the year 2018-19 in technological gap in orange production technology. West Siang district was purposively selected as it is one of the major orange producing districts of Arunachal Pradesh and is second largest in acreage of land under orange cultivation after Changlang as per Arunachal Pradesh Agriculture Census 2010-2011. Out of Six blocks, three blocks were purposively selected namely Aalo East, Liromoba and Aalo West. Multistage sampling procedure was followed. Further five villages from each block having maximum area under orange crop were selected. Orange growers were randomly selected from these fifteen villages by using stratified random sampling with proportionate allocation. Data was collected through a well-structured scheduled followed by interview method. After the analysis of result it was observed that the highest technological gap was found in intercrops, pest management, disease management and seed treatment. Study reveals that variables like Education, Extension participation, Contact with extension agencies, innovative proneness and cosmopoliteness were found to be significant and negatively correlated with the technological gal of orange production technology. Other variables such as age, total annual income, size of land holdings, area under orange crop, Risk orientation and market orientation were found to be insignificant with the technological gap in orange production technology. R2 value in the regression analysis reveals that all the variables put together could explain 85.50% variation in the consequent variable.
