Abstract:
The study was carried out in selected cluster of Shivpuri district of Madhya Pradesh during consecutive Kharif seasons of the year 2020 and 2021 to assess the yield gap between improved variety with recommended practices for cultivation and farmer’s practice under cluster front line demonstrations. Cluster Front Line Demonstrations on improved var. (JS-20-34) with improved practices were conducted at 25 framers’ fields in 10 ha area. The data were collected from all selected farmers’ fields and analyzed using simple tabular analysis. The improved technologies consisting use of new improved variety JS 20-34, seed treatment, line sowing with seed cum fertilizer drill, balanced dose of fertilizer based on soil test and integrated pest and disease management. The average yield of two years under improved technologies in CFLD was observed 11.67 q/ha which was 46.48 percent higher than the yield obtained over farmers practice (8.50 q/ha). Average Net income of Rs. 23,182 per ha with B: C ratio of 1.97 was obtained under cluster demonstrations as compared to farmers practice with Rs.10982 per ha and 1.46 respectively. The average technological and extension gap were found 13.33% and 3.17 q/ ha respectively.
The study registered higher benefit cost ratio under improved technological demonstrations and gave higher return over farmer’s local practices and it could be concluded that the front line demonstrations have given a good impact over the farming community of Shivpuri district of Madhya Pradesh.
