Abstract

The main purpose of the research work was to determine the use of climate change resilient technologies in vegetable cultivation by the farmers of Bangladesh. Data were collected from randomly selected 112 farmers’ of Haibatpur Union by using an interview schedule. Data were collected during 25th June to 25th July, 2013. Appropriate scales were developed in order to measure the variables. Correlation test was used to ascertain the relationships between the concerned dependent and independent variables of the research work. The dependent variable was use of climate change resilient technology and the independent variables were age, education, farm size, annual income, credit availability, farming experience, source of farmland, training exposure, innovativeness, risk orientation and frequency of natural disaster. The highest proportion (81.3 percent) of the farmers had medium use while 9.8 percent had low use and only 8.9 percent had high use of climate change resilient technologies. Accordingly, the uses of climate change resilient technologies are positively significant to reduce the vulnerability of climate change. Education, farm size, annual income, source of farmland, innovativeness and training exposure and frequency of natural disaster had positive relationship to adopt such technologies, while age and farming experience had negative relationship with their adoption of climate change resilient technologies.
