The study examined the status of adoption of BRRI dhan29 production technologies and estimated the contribution of the selected characteristics of the farmers to the adoption of production technologies. The methodology of this study is an integration of quantitative and qualitative data collected in Sonatala and Dohopara villages of Sariakandi upazila in Bogra district. Data were collected from 117 BRRI dhan29 growers from January 06 to February 05, 2017. Descriptive statistics, multiple regression were used for data analysis. Most of the farmers (67.5 percent) belong to medium adoption followed by high adoption (18.8 percent) BRRI dhan29 production technologies. Among the variables- age, level of education, farming experience, attitude towards rice cultivation, usage of ICT in agriculture, organizational participation and knowledge on rice production were the significant contributor and provided 59.3 percent contribution on adoption of BRRI dhan29 production technologies. It was also found that 4.2%,  15.3%,  41.1%, 31.5%  and  6.9% farmers were innovators, early adopters, early majority, late majority, and laggards respectively regarding BRRI dhan29  adoption.  It is concluded that the composite adoption of BRRI dhan29 production technologies is moderate and needs further advancement.
