Present study has been carried out in 16 tehsils of Western Maharashtra. On the basis of operational holding, 70 gram growers from 16 clusters were selected and the data pertaining to year 2011–12 was collected for the study. The area allotted for Gram was about 9.62 per cent of GCA, at overall level. The cropping intensity had decreased with the higher level of adoption. The per hectare total cost of cultivation was ‘36,480.19, at the overall level. The per hectare yield was increased from 8.92 (medium) to 14.65 (high) quintals, while the per quintal cost was reduced by 7.03 and 12.68 per cent medium and high adoption group, respectively. The ICBR ratio (1.73) indicates that the high adopter farmers were in profit. Nine independent variables have jointly explained the 43 percent of variation in output, at overall level.
