The present study was conducted in Sindhanur and Manvi taluks of Raichur district in Karnataka state during 2014–15. To analyse the adoption of improved production technologies by paddy growers. The total sample constituted 180 paddy growers comprising of 60 marginal farmers, 60 small farmers and 60 big farmers from 12 villages of two taluks in Raichur district. The results revealed that more than half of the paddy growers (50.60 percent) belonged to medium adoption category, whereas 29.44 and 20.00 per cent of the paddy growers were belonging to high and low adoption categories respectively. Non-availability of labours, lack of knowledge to manage the diseases and low price of the product were the major management, technical and marketing problems faced by paddy growers respectively. Providing agricultural inputs and machines on hire basis and providing efficient credit facilities were the important suggestions of paddy growers to overcome the problems.
