The research aimed to identify farmers' attitudes about contemporary jute farming technology and investigate the connections between a few key jute grower traits and those attitudes. The research was conducted in randomly selected five unions of Rajshahi district, Bangladesh and Paba Upazila (sub-district). Personal information was gathered via face-to-face structurally scheduled interviews between 10 January to March 12, 2021. According to the data, most farmers (40.04 %) had a very favourable attitude, while 42.82% and 17.14% had a favourable and less favourable attitude, respectively. Furthermore, the Pearson correlation coefficient analysis results revealed education, training, innovativeness and extension media contact are positively significant to their attitude towards modern technology. Therefore, a higher level of education, training, knowledge and innovativeness increase the attitude toward modern technology use. On the other hand, there was no correlation between the attitude toward modern jute cultivation technology of the jute producers and their age, farm size, annual family income, and agricultural knowledge.
