The aforementioned study was conducted in Navsari and Surat districts of South Gujarat during the year 2014-2016. The primary data was collected from 100 respondents by personal interview method using structure interview schedule. After the analysis of the data, it was observed that, majority of the paddy growers (85.00 %) belonged to medium level of overall technological gap category. 75.00 per cent gap was found in adoption of recommended herbicide in transplanted field and least gap (24.00 %) was found in case of adoption of recommended variety. Socio-economic variables associated with the respondents, such as risk orientation, scientific orientation, education, annual income and mass media exposure, extension participation, extension contact and social participation were negatively and significantly associated with the overall technological gap. The above results compel the research and extension system to work on the gaps and negative relationship in a pragmatic way.

Keywords: Adoption, Cultivation practices, Paddy, South Gujarat, Technological gap.
