Abstract:
The Cluster frontline demonstrations (CFLDs) on groundnut were conducted by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Mamnoor, Warangal during Rabi season of 2018-19 and 2019-2020 across an area of 97.2 ha with 157 demonstrations. Results revealed that per cent increase in demonstration yield over farmers practice was 18.7 and 24.24 during 2018-19 and 2019-20 respectively. Highest B: C ratio (2.61 and 3.16) was realized from demonstration during the study period against B: C ratio of 2.20 and 2.53 in farmers practice. During investigation, average technology gap (3.9 q/ha), average extension gap (3.7 q/ha) and technology index of 13.2% and 18.0% in respective years was recorded. Increased production and economic returns improved livelihood of farmers. The present study signifies that location specific recommendations must be formulated to narrow down technology gap and encourage beneficiary farmers to adopt full demonstrated technology to lessen extension gap. The technology index warrants horizontal spread.
