Abstract:
To create awareness for use of bio fertilizers and the adoption of new input in mango var. Kesar and sapota var. Kalipatti demonstrations were conducted during the year 2020-21 in different blocks of Navsari district viz., Navsari, Jalalpore and Gandevi. Use of bio fertilizer in demonstrated plot resulted in higher yield (97.00 and 129.00 q/ha) compared to check plots (86.50 and 113.50 q/ha) in mango and sapota fruit crops, respectively. The yield increase compared to check field plots was 12.14 and 13.66% in mango and sapota crops, respectively. The extension gap was recorded in mango and sapota was 10.50 q/ha and 15.50 q/ha. Similarly, the technical gap was recorded 8.00 q/ha in mango and 21.00 q/ha in sapota. The technology index recorded 7.62% in mango and 14.00% in sapota. The benefit-cost ratio was recorded higher in the demonstrated plot of mango (3.66) and sapota (3.46) fruit crops compared to the check plot which was recorded 3.43 and 3.15, respectively. Moreover, net return increase percent in mango was also recorded 15% and 18% in sapota.
