Abstract:
The objective of the front line demonstration (FLD) that was conducted at the farmer's field by the Krishi Vigyan Kendra in Kaithal, Haryana, was to determine the difference in yield of summer moong that existed between the demonstrated field and the farmers' practices (FP) under irrigated conditions. It was determined that conventional farming techniques resulted in a yield of 4.0 q/ha for summer moong, while the demonstrated farming procedures resulted in a yield of 5.75 q/ha for summer moong. These findings were based on an average of the two years, 2017-18 and 2018-19. The average of the technology gap, extension gap, and technology index was recorded as 6.25, 1.75, and 52.08 respectively, and the average cost benefit ratio was recorded as 3:95 and 4:28 respectively in demonstrated field and farmer's practices during 2017-18 and 2018-19 respectively. These figures were recorded during the years 2017-18 and 2018-19. The discrepancy between the two practices, namely the front line demonstration and the farmers' practices, may be because the farmers have not followed the Package and Practices and the most recent technology from the time of sowing to the time of the final harvest of summer moong.
