Abstract:
The present study was carried out to evaluate the performance of demonstrated technologies like improved varieties of Chickpea (JG 130, JG 14 & RVG 202), optimum seed rate (kg/ha), Seed treatment with Carbendazim + Mancozeb + Rhizobium, Soil application with Trichoderma viridae & PSB, line sowing, RDF as STV, pre-emergence weedicide application, water management at critical stages and application of IPM module for the management of insect-pest & diseases. Cluster frontline demonstrations (CFLD’s) were conducted on chickpea in Lalbarra, Balaghat, Katangi, Kirnapur, Waraseoni, block of Balaghat district during 2018-19 to 2022-23 in total of 170 ha area on 364 number of demonstrations. The result revealed that average yield of chickpea under cluster frontline demonstration were 13.46, 9.3, 12.12, 12.23 and 12.03 q/ha as compare to 8.5, 5.5, 7.1, 7.6 and 7.1 q/ha recorded in farmer’s practice during 2018-19 to 2022-23 respectively. The Percentage increase in the yield in demonstration over farmers practices were 58.35, 69.09, 70.7, 65.21 and 64.87 percent during the year 2018-19 to 2022-23. The average technology gap was 8.57 q/ha, average extension gap was 4.67 q/ha and average technology index was 42.08% during the year 2018-19 to 2022-23. It was observed that the benefit cost ratio (B:C) of recommended practices (CFLD’s) were 2.9, 2.0, 2.7, 2.8 and 2.7 as compared to 1.9, 1.2, 1.6, 1.7 and 1.7 in farmer’s practice during the five consecutive years.
