Abstrak

Front line demonstration is an appropriate means for demonstration as well as the transfer of improved agricultural innovation to the farming community. Krishi Vigyan Kendra Shajapur has conducted a front line demonstration in farmer’s field during 2013-14 to 2018-19, in all 45 demonstrations on the Green gram to transfer the latest technology among the farmers of Shajapur district. The result revealed that the highest green gram yield was obtained in demonstrated plot with an average of 7.98 qt/ha compared to 5.89 qt/ha in farmer’s practice. Higher average net return (` 33274/ha) was obtained in the demonstration plots compared to farmers’ practice plot (` 23003.66/ha). The average B:C ratio was calculated 3.39 in demonstrated plot compared to 2.77 in farmer’s plot. This can be attributed to improved technology as well as improved varieties. The yield level was considerably low under local practices because of considerable variation in the extent of adoption of recommended practices depending upon the amount of risk involved in terms of cost convenience, skill and knowledge about the concerned practices. The productivity was better over local practices under demonstration. Hence, Green gram production technology has a broad scope for increasing the area and production of Green gram.
