Abstract

Banana is a major fruit among all fruits which available throughout the year in Bangladesh. It is the fruit which under the purchasable limit of all income levels people in the country. The consumption of banana is mainly domestically and a small part shares in the global market. A major part of the population of the study area is engaged with banana cultivation. Their livelihoods are mainly depending on banana cultivation. So, the study was undertaken with a random sample of 100 banana growers of Salmara village of Gaibandha district of Bangladesh. We observed that that majority of the banana growers had medium level of knowledge, adoption and attitude towards banana cultivation technology. The 62.00% banana growers belong to medium level of adoption of banana cultivation technology, whereas 21.00% banana growers had high level of adoption and 17.00% of them had low level of adoption. The findings suggest that a special program should be taken by the government to improve the level of knowledge, adoption and favorable attitude towards banana cultivation technology.
