Abstract:
The study was carried out by Krishi Vigyan Mandla district of Madhya Pradesh to know the yield gaps between scientific package and practices under cluster front line demonstration (CFLD oilseeds) and farmer’s practice (FP) of Niger crop under rainfed condition. Cluster Front Line Demonstration on Niger were conducted 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 demonstrate the impact of enriched agro-techniques on production and economic benefits under rainfed conditions. CFLD’s were conducted in 21.6 ha and 20 ha area for two years with active involvement of 104 farmers and scientific staff of Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Mandla. According to analysis of data the highest grain yield was obtained in demonstrated plots with an average of 5.53 q/ha as compared to local check with an average of 3.68 q/ha. An average mean of extension gap, technology gap and technology index were calculated as 1.85 q/ha, 1.97q/ha, 26.27 percent, respectively. Adoption of improved package of practices in Niger cultivation recorded average higher B:C ratio (2.82) as compared to Farmers Practice (2.47) during the period of study. Thus, the productivity of Niger 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.
