Abstract:
During the kharif seasons of 2019, 2020, and 2021, Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Mahendergarh, performed Front Line Demonstration (FLD) in the farmers' fields in the villages of the districts. Through meetings and talks with farmers, the crucial inputs in the production technique that is now in use were determined. The soil in the demonstration fields was sandy loam, low in organic cabon content, low in nitrogen, medium in phosphorus, and medium in potash. The crops that were rotated included pearl millet, cluster beans, and mung beans along with mustard and wheat. Clusterbean crop yield in district Mahendergarh was found to be poor for a number of reasons, including delayed sowing, inappropriate seed rate and unbalanced fertilizer application, unchecked weed growth, and a lack of plant protection measures. The remaining factors, including the technological impact, the economic impact, and the extension gap, were examined in the same order in order to determine the impact of the front-line demonstration on the clusterbean crop and the viability of the proven technologies at the local level. The findings of three years showed that the variety performed very well in the first year (2019), with average yields of 11.9 q/ha, 13.10% greater than the check variety (10.50 q/ha). Based on the first year's results, the demonstration was extended the following year, namely in 2020 and 2021. The grain yield of the HG 2-20 variety rose above the yield attained under farmers' practice by 1.4 q/ha (2019), 1.30 q/ha (2020), and 0.98 q/ha (2021), The average three year data between the farmers' methods and the displayed plots, there was an extension gap that ranged from 0.98 to 1.4 qtl per hectare across the years. On average, this extension gap was 1.23 qtl per hectare. Depending on generated grain yield and MSP selling prices, the incremental benefit cost ratio (B: C) was 1.99, 2.77 and 2.96 in 2019, 2020, and 2021, respectively. It was found that farmers received an average return of Rs. 4535/ha with an extra investment of Rs. 805, which is so little that even small and marginal farmers could afford it.
