Abstract:

Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) is a new idea for Punjab farmers. Most vegetable growers are unaware of it and have not implemented the practices. The study aimed to establish the factors that influence the awareness of GAP among vegetable growers in Punjab, India. Consequently, 100 vegetable growers were selected by purposive sampling and simple random sampling techniques. Multiple regression was used to analyze the effect of the variables on the awareness of GAP among the vegetable growers. Results showed that education, operational land, land leased, training, and income had a significant effect on the awareness of GAP. Based on the results, emphasis on training and capacity building of vegetable growers regarding GAP is suggested as a way of increasing awareness.
