The present investigation was carried out to analyze the socio-economic status of the sugarcane growers, to know their level of adoption of varied sugarcane technologies, perception of advantages related with the technologies in sugarcane, and to identify the constraints in adoption by interviewing 60 growers from the command area of Madras Sugars, Tamil Nadu. It was found that farmers had varied levels of adoption of sugarcane technologies. All the respondent farmers adopted new sugarcane varieties, thorough land preparation with cultivator, ridges and furrows making followed by basal application of organic manures and top dressing with nitrogen and potash fertilizers. The constraints encountered by most of the respondents in adoption were fear of taking risk while growing new sugarcane varieties soon after release, new varieties needed more inputs, increased rodent menace in trash mulching, occurrence of new pests and diseases and lack of labour to do ratoon management operations in time. In spite of these constraints, all the farmers favoured the continued adoption of advanced sugarcane technology. The study also helps to get a better understanding of the performance of scientific technologies in farmer’s fields and the apprehensions of sugarcane growers.
