Abstract:
Front line demonstration is an appropriate means for demonstration of improved technology and innovations in agriculture for large scale popularization among the farming community. National Food Security Mission, a centrally sponsored scheme on Pulses, enabled KVK Rajsamand, to conduct Cluster Front line demonstration on green gram during Kharif 2018-19 to 2020-21 in 150 demonstration plots in 60 ha, at farmer's fields in villages i.e., Nabri, Taraka ka khera and Mallakheri of Khamnor, Railmagra and Bhim block of Rajsamand district of Rajasthan. The present study was conducted to demonstrate production potential and economic benefit of improved technologies comprising improved varieties, sowing method, nutrient management and integrated pest management and adoption of whole package of practices. The findings of the study revealed that the demonstrated technology resulted in a mean yield of 6.31 q/ha as compared to farmers practices 4.82 q/ha. The average yield increased 30.91 per cent over farmer’s practices during the three years. The result indicated that the CFLDs has given a good impact over the farming community of the district was obtained with improved technologies in comparison to farmers practices. The frontline demonstrations conducted on green gram crop at farmer’s field revealed that the adoption of improved technologies significantly increased the yield as well as yield attributing traits of crop than the farmer’s practices. So, there is a need to disseminate the improved technologies among the farmers with effective extension methods like training and demonstrations. The farmers should be encouraged to adopt the recommended package of practices realizing for higher yield.
