Abstract:
Integrated crop management (ICM) demonstrations were done in 40 farmers' fields in the Lingasugur taluk of Raichur district in Karnataka state during the Kharif seasons of 2020-21 and 2021-22 with the goal of increasing cotton yield. According to the data, Integrated Crop Management (ICM) practices produced a mean yield of 234.6 kg/ha, which is 8.9% greater than farmers' methods (208.7 kg/ha). 25.7 kg/ha, 502.4 kg/ha, and 68%, respectively, were the average extension gap, technology gap, and technology index. Improved production practices resulted in a greater benefit-cost ratio (5.09) than the local check (3.96) cultivated by farmers in the area. Tomato productivity per unit area might be boosted by implementing scientifically sound and long-term management strategies. In light of the above discussion, ICM demonstrations were conducted in a methodical and scientific manner on farmer's fields to demonstrate the value of better practices and persuade the farming community of the potential of enhanced tomato production management technologies for future adoption.
