Abstract:

Wheat {Triticum aestivam L.} is one of the important cereals Rabi crop grown in all over the Rajasthan. The low productivity of wheat crop is due to poor adoption of improved technologies of wheat by the farmers. Hence, the Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Nohar, Hanumangarh-II (Rajasthan) has organized frontline demonstrations with improved variety along with recommended package of practices during Rabi 2012-13 to 2014-15 (three consecutive years) at farmer’s field of different villages in area of 18 hectare on 45 locations (farmers). Thus, a total of 45 demonstrations were selected. The data were collected and analysed using simple tabular analysis. The results of the study showed that the average grain yield of wheat under demonstration plots was 4293 kg/ha when compared to local check 3933 kg/ha. The average percentage increase in the yield over local check was 9.24% during the course of study. Technology gap and technology index values were 507 kg per hectare and 10.56%, respectively. It is concluded that wide gap existed in potential and demonstration yield in high yielding wheat varieties due to technology and extension gap in Hanumangarh district of Rajasthan.
