Abstract:
In Morigaon district of Assam, 431.25 demonstrations on High Yielding Variety (HYV) of toria TS-38 were conducted by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Morigaon during 2017-18 to 2019-20. The study revealed that the yield of toria with HYV and improved production technology has been increased significantly as compared to local varieties cultivated by farmer. The demo yield was obtained in range from 9.5 to 11.5 q/ha whereas in farmers practice it was recorded from 5.5 to 8.4 q/ha. The percentage increase over farmer’s practice was obtained from 53.33 to 72.73%. the average technology gap, extension gap and technology index were found to be 1.16 q/ha, 4 q/ha and 9.67% respectively. Introducing high yielding varieties with improved production technology, the yield of toria can be enhanced to a great extent with increased economic conditions of farming community.
