The overall objective of the study was to accomplish a comparative analysis of adoption of modern technology under owner and tenant farms in a selected area of Dinajpur district. A total of 60 households, 30 owner operators and 30 tenant operators were selected on the basis of purposive random sampling technique. Majority of the owner farmers were between 41-50 years and tenant farmers were between 30-40 years of age. Agriculture was the major occupation of both types of farmers. Overall literacy level of the sample farmers was 50 percent. Owner farmers had bigger farm size than tenant farmers. Income from the crop constituted the highest for both categories of farmers. The degrees of adequacy level in the application of modern farm inputs were higher in owner farms than in tenant farms. An attempt was made in this study to explore a composite view of the adoption of modern technology on HYV Boro rice growing farms. For Boro rice production, the majorities (67 per cent) of owner farmers of the study area were low adopters and 33 per cent of them were medium adopters. On the other hand, 87 per cent tenant farmers producing Boro rice were low adopters and 13 per cent of them were medium adopters. The study also revealed that because of poor resource base the tenants were unable to invest on modern farm inputs. Download
