Impact of front line demonstration on the yield and economics of chickpea in Udaipur district of Rajasthan

Madan Lal Choudhary and RL Soni
A study was carried-out to popularization of Chickpea production technologies during Rabi seasons 2018-19, 2019-20 and 2020-21 at farmer's fields in tribal belt of Udaipur District of Rajasthan. Clusters Front Line Demonstration (CFLD) on Chickpea crop was conducted on an area of 46 ha. Total 115 demonstrations were conducted on 115 farmers’ fields with improved technologies composed of GNG 1958 variety and recommended production practices. Krishi Vigyan Kendra has an innovative science–based institution, plays an important role in bringing the research scientists face to face with farmers. The main aim of Krishi Vigyan Kendra is to reduce the time lag between generation of technology at the research institution and its transfer to the farmers for increasing productivity and income from the agriculture and allied sectors on sustained basis. The average yield of demonstration plots of chick pea achieved by improved production technology was 18.97q/ha compared to farmers’ practice 15.52q/ha. Adoption of improved production technology increased yield by 22.23 per cent over farmers’ practices. Average technological gap, extension gap and technological index were calculated i.e, 7.83q/ha, 3.45q/ha and 29.23 per cent, respectively. When economics viability was taken into consideration it was found that average net return was Rs. 64508/- per ha was recorded under CFLDs plot over farmer practices of Rs 47373/- per ha which is highly encouraging and it is suggested to adopt these technologies for sustainable production of chickpea in tribal belt of Udaipur district of Rajasthan.
