The data was collected from the respondents by personally interviewing them with the help of the specially designed interview schedule. The data were analyzed with the help of frequency, percentage, standard deviation and coefficient correlation. The results revealed that majority of respondents were middle age group, educated upto middle school level, having medium level of annual income, small land holders, medium size of family, medium level of social participation, extension contact, availability of inputs of IPM, economic motivation, risk orientation and scientific orientation.
