Abstract:
Present investigation was conducted by Krishi Vigyan Kendra Mandla district of Madhya Pradesh to find out the yield gaps among scientific package and practices under cluster front line demonstration (CFLD pulses) and local farmer’s practice (FP) of Pigeonpea (Cicer arietinum L.) crop variety Rajeshwari under rainfed condition. CFLD on Pigeonpea were performed on farmer’s fields during Kharif season of two sequential years i.e. 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 under National Food Security Mission (NFSM), Govt. of India to exhibit the impact of improved agro-techniques on production and economic benefits. CFLD’s were conducted in 30 ha and 20 ha area for two years with dynamic participation of 125 farmers and technical staff of Krishi Vigyan Kendra Mandla. According to observed data the highest grain yield was obtained in experimental plots with an average of 13.74 q/ha as compared to local check with an average of 8.15 q/ha. An average mean of extension gap, technology gap and technology index were calculated as 5.60 q/ha, 6.35q/ha, 31.75 percent, respectively. Average higher B:C ratio (3.07) as compared to Farmers Practice (1.93) during the period of study was recorded in adoption of scientific package of practices in Pigeonpea cultivation. Thus, the productivity of Pigeonpea could be increased with the adoption of recommended developed package of practices. The study resulted in satisfying the farmers for maximum productivity and incomes.
