Abstract:
Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Dhamtari has conducted Cluster Front Line Demonstration on Black gram variety PU-1 at farmers fields in the two adopted villages namely Sinoli and Kustla during Kharif 2017-2018 and 2018-19 under National Food Security Mission, Govt. of India. Fifty front line demonstrations were conducted in 20 hectare area with active involvement of farmers and scientific staff of KVK. The increase in yields of black gram crop under cluster front line demonstrations was attributed to spreading of improved technologies viz. YVM resistant variety, seed treatment with bio-fertilizers, use of recommended seed rate, proper dose of fertilizers and plant protection measures. The study revealed that the yield of black gram in CFLD under rainfed conditions ranged from 9.29 to 10.29 q/ha whereas in FP it ranged between 4.32 to 4.5 q/ha. The per cent increase in yield with Improved Practices (IP) over FP was recorded in the range of 52.85 to 52.79. However, the extension gap and technological index were ranging between 5.06 -5.79 q/ha. The benefit cost ratio was 2.46 to 2.52 under the farming community for higher productivity and returns.
