Abstract: The present study was undertaken in the Marathwada region of Maharashtra state during the years 2021–22. Purposively selected two districts, viz., Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar (Aurangabad) and Jalna districts of Marathwada region of Maharashtra state, on the basis of the maximum number of farmers cultivating red gram (BDN 711), were found in these two districts. The talukas were also selected purposefully on the basis of the maximum number of farmers cultivating red gram (BDN 711). So from Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar (Aurangabad), district two talukas were selected, namely Paithan and Gangapur; from Jalna, district two talukas, namely Ambad and Badnapur, were selected. Thus, a total of four talukas were selected. From each selected taluk, four villages were selected purposefully on the basis of the maximum number of farmers cultivating red gram (BDN 711); for that purpose, lists were obtained from NARP, KVK Aurangabad, Jalna, VNMKV, and Parbhani; hence, sixteen villages were selected for conducting the study. So from each village, fifteen farmers were selected purposefully from that list, and we considered them respondents, thus making a sample of 240 respondents. To study the impact, some respondents were analysed before and after cultivation of BDN 711, i.e., recall memories of farmers. An ex-post facto research design was adopted in this study. The findings with regard to total technological impact change percentage divided by the overall percentage of each component before and after cultivation of BDN 711 show that the farmers have established 17.41% technological impact.
