Abstract:
In India among all the edible oilseeds crops rapeseeds - mustard immerse the foremost position reckoning nearly millions of hectare of land under cultivation. The trails for Front line Demonstrations were conducted to study the actual yield gap and extension gap among the small and marginal farmers of the adopted village. Seeking this demonstration was conducted during two consecutive years i.e. 2017-18 and 2018-19 for clear interpretation of the results. The comparisons were made between the improved practices and the farmer practice. In principal the control practices were nothing but the farmers practice. By using the formula yield gap, extension gap analysis, technology index and technology gap was thus calculated for interpretation of results of study conducted The result obtained revealed that the average yield of the demonstration thus obtained was 18.37 q/ha as compare to farmer practices which was 14.37 q/ha with an additional yield of 4.00 q/ha with an average percentage increase in production by 28.12 %. The average extension gap for two years was recorded to be 4.10 q/ha followed by technology gap and technology index which was reported to be 2.37 q/ha and 14.84 % respectively. The decreasing trend of extension gap and technology gap in the study clearly indicates the good education level of the small as well as marginal farmers of the concerned village and also the satisfactory rate of adoption of improved technologies regarding cultivation of rapeseeds - mustard crop of the district.
