Post-harvest grain storage operation is a concluding activity in agriculture and mostly performed by rural women to secure the food grains and reduce the post-harvest losses. Post-harvest losses occur from farm to ultimate consumption. These losses might be either due to lack of awareness on the part of rural women about the scientific grain storage methods, improved storage practices and improved storage structures. Hence, the present study was planned with the specific objective of assessing the knowledge and adoption level of farm women about grain storage technologies. Two hundred farm women were selected from ten villages of Deesa taluka in Banaskantha district of Gujarat. It was found that farm women had more knowledge about indigenous grain storage practices while they do not have much knowledge about modern grain storage practices. Adoption level of recommended grain storage practices was found medium. Despite of having knowledge of practices, they do not adopt few of the grain storage practices.
