Abstract:
Twelve apple varieties were known to the respondents. But the awareness and adoption varied. The awareness of varieties varied from 3-85% where as the adoption varied from 7.50-58.33%. The most popular varieties were Golden Delicious, Red Delicious and Amri but their adoption was not more than 58%. Major reasons for non-adoption were, varieties are susceptible to disease, low production, and farm area was scattered and also less economic return as reported by 92.50, 72.50, 35.83 and 31.66%, respectively.
