Author(s): Dr. Randhir Singh Ranta and Vinod Kumar

Abstract: Himachal Pradesh has long been regarded as a horticultural state due to magnificent achievements in the production of fruits, mainly apple, which constitutes about 49 per cent of the total area under fruit crops and about 85 per cent of the total fruit production. The present study is an attempt to find the socio-economic status of apple growers and perception of apple growers regarding the use of ICT in the study area. The study was carried out in Shimla and Kullu districts of Himachal Pradesh. In all, the study targeted 100 apple growers aged 21 and above who use ICTs for apple farming purposes. The non probability method was used with random-cum-purposive sampling technique. The data was collected through focused group discussion, interview and questionnaire. The collected primary data was tabulated; computerized simple statistical tools such as percentages and chi-square were used. At the same time, a substantial part of this research paper is based on table analysis.
