Abstract: A survey research was conducted with randomly selected 168 paddy growing households in
Lamjung district, Nepal. Information on cost of seed, labor and inorganic fertilizers along with
paddy income and other socio-economic variables were obtained. Result showed that paddy
growers used NRs 154,379, total variable cost per hectare and benefit cost ratio was 1.34. The
average cost per hectare for seed, labor and inorganic fertilizer were Rs 6,934, Rs 139,347 and
Rs 8,097 respectively, where other costs like fixed cost, management cost and manure cost were
considered implicit expenses. Average area under paddy cultivation was 0.39 ha and gross
margin per hectare was Rs 40, 895 Results of logistic regression analysis on adoption behavior of
stress tolerant paddy varieties with various regressors showed maximum likelihood estimator and
value 83.663 and 0.586 respectively. Farmers joined in farm association, upland
paddy grower, male-headed farm household and education level of household head had
likelihood of positive relationship with adoption of stress tolerant paddy varieties. Probability of
one unit of change in above said variables, likelihood of adoption could increase by 4.52, 71.38,
5.345 and 2.34 units respectively, ceteris paribus. However, paddy income and occupation of
household head showed no significant difference. In the stressed condition of the climate, this
study suggested the farmers for rapid adoption of stress tolerant varieties in order to increase
both income and livelihood.
