Abstract:

The present study was conducted by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Ganjam-II during 2015 and 2016 in rabi in three villages Khalingi, Jura, Sunathara. The KVK scientists have conducted frontline demonstration in sweetcorn with the active participation of farmers with the objective to demonstrate the improved technologies in crop. The improved technologies consisting use of improved variety (Madhuri), Integrated nutrient and weed management, pest and disease management. The results of demonstration showed that farmers could increase the sweetcorn productivity notably by switching over to improved variety and adoption of improved production technology. From the front line demonstration, it was observed that the sweetcorn variety Madhuri recorded higher green cob yield (83.3q/ha) as compared to farmers practice (65.7)q/ha. The increase in the demonstration yield over farmer’s practices was 26.9 per cent. The technology gap and technology index were 11.7q/ha and 12.3 respectively.
