Abstract:
The present study was carried out by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Dhar, Madhya Pradesh to study the impact of frontline demonstrations on popularization and productivity enhancement of blackgram (Vigna mungo) at tribal farmer’s fields. The maximum yield of blackgram in FLDs under rainfed conditions ranged from 697 and 925 kg/ha whereas the minimum yield (474 and 659 kg/ha) was recorded in farmers’ practice during both the years (2015-16 and 2016-17) of study, respectively. The per cent increase in yield with recommended practices (RP) over FP was recorded in the range of 40.22 to 47.15. The extension gap was ranging between 223 -265 kg/ha and technological index (41.92 and 26.08%) was found during both the years of study, respectively. The trend of technology gap reflected the farmer’s cooperation in carrying out demonstrations with encouraging results in subsequent years. The maximum gross monetary return (Rs. 34850 and Rs. 55440/ha) was recorded in recommended practice while minimum gross monetary return (Rs. 21330 and Rs. 36231/ha) was observed in farmer’s practice during both the years, respectively. Moreover, the maximum net monetary returns recorded in recommended practice (Rs. 24775 and Rs. 40720/ha) and minimum net monetary return observed in farmer’s practice (Rs. 13227 and Rs. 23528/ha), respectively. Similar trend was found in case of Benefit-Cost ratio as highest B:C ratio was found in recommended practice (3.45 and 3.77) as compared to farmers existing practice (2.63 and 2.85) during both the years of study, respectively.
