Abstract:
The study was carried out during Kharif season of 2020, 2021 and 2022 in Aurangabad district of Maharashtra state. The Cluster front line demonstrations of Pigeon pea crop were conducted at 100 farmers’ fields, in area of 40 ha. The objective to demonstrate the latest technology of pigeon pea production potential and economic benefit with new short duration & drought resistant suitable variety (BDN-711). The INM & IPDM Practices, Integrated Crop Management technologies were implemented. The results revealed that the improved technologies recorded average yield of 26.2 q/ha over check plot yield of 22.15 ha which is more than 18.28% increase in in kharif 2020. Whereas, Cost of cultivation for demo plot was Rs. 29,750/ha and for check plot it was also Rs. 29,750/ha. In contest to that demo plot gained Rs. 1,38,500/ha net return over Rs. 1,14,225/ha for check plot. So it was found that demo plot has 21.25% more yield than check plot during Kharif 2020. In Kharif 2021 demo plot containing BDN-711 variety gained average yield of 4.9 q/ha over 3.6 q/ha yield of check plot which is more than 36.11% increase in yield over check plot Cost of cultivation for demo plot was Rs. 15,119/ha and for check plot it was Rs. 12,415/ha. For this season demo plot gained Rs. 14,281/ha net return over Rs. 8,150/ha for check plot. So it was found that demo plot has 75.23% more yield than check plot during Kharif 2021. While in Kharif 2022 demo plot gained average yield of 9.9 q/ha over 5.6q/ha average yield for check plots which was 76.79% more increase in yield over check plot during this season. Whereas, Cost of cultivation for demo plot was Rs. 26480/ha and for check plot it was also Rs. 25,200/ha. It was found that demo plot gained Rs. 20,940/ha over Rs. 7,280/ha for check plot and demo plot have 288.0% more net return than the check plot. Average of three years net return was Rs. 1,63,094/ha over Rs. 1,54,551/ha over check which to increase farmers yield during 2020, 2021 & 2022 years in Aurangabad district which helps to horizontal spread for increase in area under pigeon pea crop & net income of farmers in district.
