Abstract:
An On-Farm Trial (OFT) was carried out by KVK, CAZRI, Kukma, Kutch (Guj.) for three consecutive years i.e. 2015-16, 2016-17 & 2017-18 to study the impact of improved practices along with high-yielding variety in tomato for adoption of improved cultivation practices at the farmer's field of three Talukas viz., Anjar, Bhuj and Nakhatrana of Kutch, Gujarat. For the three years study, a total 4.0 ha area was taken with the involvement of 10 progressive farmers. The fruit yield of the demonstration plot was 378.89 q/ha, 21.70% over the control practices (311.78 q/ha) used by farmer. The extension gap, technology gap, and technology index were 64.78 q/ha, 73.45 q/ha, and 15.80%, respectively. By the application of new techniques and high yielding hybrid variety, farmers profited with an extra income of Rs. 37232.67 per ha.
