Abstract:
The present investigation was conducted to study the performance of kabuli gram (Phule G-517) sown on Furrow irrigated Raised Bed System (FIRBS) in Dewas district of Malwa Region of Madhya Pradesh. The field experiments were conducted by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, RVSKVV, Dewas at different villages of district viz. Narana, Nanadharakhedi, Dakachya, Gorba, Amlawati, Nipaniya, Rajoda, Binjayana, Khatmba and Chhoticurlai during the rabi season of the year 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-18 to evaluate the productive performance of Kabuli gram under FIRBS. On the basis of three years average data, 19.89 per cent yield advantages was recorded under demonstrations with improved technological practices with FIRBS as compared to farmer’s traditional way of kabuli gram cultivation. The results of economic analysis of demonstrations revealed that average higher gross return Rs.128850 per ha and net return Rs.96410/ ha as compared to farmer’s practices which were Rs. 107475/ ha and Rs 77797 per ha respectively. The average higher additional net returns Rs. 18713/ha and effective gain Rs. 15876 /ha obtained under demonstrations could be due to improved technology, raised bed technique, non-monetary factors, timely operations of crop cultivation and scientific monitoring. It is concluded that the technology needs to be popularized to decrease the extension gaps, technology gap, technology index, adoptions gaps and there by yield gap so as to increase the income of farmers. The economic details of the demonstrations give us a green signal to further popularize them among the farming community for large scale adoption.
