Abstract:

The study was carried out in NICRA village Chomakot of Kota district during 2012-13 to 2015-16. Total 80 front line demonstrations were conducted on coriander in 40 ha by the active participation of the farmers with the objective of improved technologies of coriander production potentials. The improved technologies consist improved variety (R.Cr.436), balanced fertilizers (soil test based) application and integrated disease and pest management, etc. The demonstrated recorded an average yield ranging from 1210 kg to 1770 kg/ ha with a mean of 1542 kg/ha. The per cent increase yield in demonstration ranged from 5.22% to 13.50% in the respective years. The average extension gap, technology gap and technology index were 136.55 kg/ha, 457.50 kg/ha and 22.87%, respectively. The demonstrated field gave higher net return Rs. 35700/- to Rs. 59900/ ha and B:C ratio 1.64 to 2.83 with mean Rs. 54550/ha and 2.33, respectively. Present results clearly show that the yield and economics of Coriander can be boost up by adoption of recommended technology.
