Abstract
India’s productivity of rice production lags behind China’s. Given its status as global food supplier, it is not only national but also world’s concern.

Despite the effort to encourage hybrid rice adoption, the rate of adoption of the technology remains low because of both insufficient adoption and high rate of disadoption. This calls for more research focused on socioeconomic factors influencing the adoption decision and continued use of hybrid rice.
