Broccoli is a high value nutritive crop grown in small pockets without the proper knowledge of cultivation and selection of proper variety is the main concern in Manipur. Most of the farmers in Manipur grow random broccoli varieties found in the authorized shops like Delbros, Khoyathong, Manipur. Hence, to find out the yield potential and its economic impact, two high yielding broccoli varieties, TSX-0788 and Green Magic were chosen for the study at five different locations viz., Leimaram, Toubul, Kwasiphai, Moirang and Kumbi of Bishnupur district, Manipur using Front Line Demonstration (FLD) technique. The adopted package of practices was seed rate 400 g/ha, spacing 60x45 cm, FYM 500Kg/ha. NPK 120:80:60 Kg/ha. Results indicated that the variety TSX-0788 was found superior to Green Magic in terms of yield and net return. Broccoli variety TSX-0788 could obtain the yield of approximately 112.50 q/ha with a net return of Rs.2,65,150/- and a benefit cost ratio of 4.66:1; while the check variety Green Magic obtained 103.53 q/ha with a net return of Rs.2,38,210/- and a benefit cost ratio of 3.65:1. The percent increase in yield over the check variety was 58.1%.The technology gap, extension gap and technology index were 72.5 q/ha, 8.98 q/ha and 37.5% respectively. From the current findings it can be concluded that selection of broccoli variety TSX-0788 could help to improve the economy of the farmers.
