Abstract: This study was done to determine the factors influence the adoption of MIS and the problems faced by the farmers in practicing MIS for vegetable cultivation at three major vegetable cultivating GN divisions such as Cheddipalayam, Kaluthavalai and Kaluwanchikudy in Batticaloa district. A field survey was done with randomly selected 50 MIS and 75 non-MIS adopting farmers using structured questionnaire, direct observations as well as personal interview. Results indicated that all the selected MIS adopters are much educated with advanced level (54%) and 48% of them get higher income (>30000Rs) than non-MIS adopters. As far as the MIS adopters are concerned, 100% of farmers use sprinkler system only. It is also revealed that extent of crop cultivated under MIS is very less than the areas irrigated with non-MIS. Less labour cost (14%), support by NGOs (20%), high yield (12%), less water demand (8%) and wide extension services are the (8%) reasons behind the shift from non-MIS to MIS. However, lack of capital, knowledge and poor water quality are the major factors influencing on the adoption MIS in the study area. Therefore, the study suggests that regular extension services, training programs and supply of subsidies for establishing MIS will motivate the farmers forthe adoption of MIS in the study area.
