Abstract:
The study was carried out by Krishi Vigyan Mandla district of Madhya Pradesh to know the yield gaps between improved package and practices under cluster front line demonstration (CFLD oilseeds) and farmer’s practice (FP) of Linseed crop under rainfed condition. Cluster Front Line Demonstration on Linseed were conducted on farmer’s fields during Rabi season of two sequential years i.e. 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 under National Food Security Mission (NFSM), Govt. of India to demonstrate the impact of enriched agro-techniques on production and economic benefits under rainfed conditions. CFLD’s were conducted in 30 ha and 20 ha area for two years with active involvement of 125 farmers and scientific staff of KVK. According to analysis of data the highest grain yield was obtained in demonstrated plots with an average of 7.54 q/ha as compared to local check with an average of 4.70 q/ha. An average mean of extension gap, technology gap and technology index were calculated as 2.84 q/ha, 8.47q/ha, 52.91 percent, respectively. Adoption of improved package of practices in Linseed cultivation recorded average higher B:C ratio (2.1) as compared to Farmers Practice (1.54) during the period of study. Thus, the productivity of Linseed could be increased with the adoption of recommended improved package of practices. The study resulted in satisfying the farming community for higher productivity and returns.
