Abstract:

The present study was carried out to evaluate the performance of improved cultivars with scientific package of practices on production, productivity and profitability of pulses. Cluster frontline demonstrations (CFLDs) were conducted during 2016-17 and 2017-18 in total of 170 demonstrations with evaluation of the performance of TBG 104, variety of blackgram in Orvakallu and Gonegandla blocks, Red gram variety PRG-176 in Mecadona block and Chick pea Variety NBeG-3 in Ramapuram block of the district and record the feedback information of farmers. The results revealed that average yield of red gram, black gram and chick pea under cluster frontline Demonstrations were 970,1160 and 850 Kgha-1 as compare to 830,890 and 720 Kgha-1 recorded in farmer’s practice in 2016-17, and in 2017-18 the average yields were1050,1280 and 950 Kgha-1 in demonstration fields where as 870, 910, 810 Kgha-1 in farmer’s practice. The average yield increase of 18.7, 35.6 and 19.93 per cent and additional return of 15,753.00, 21,308.00 and 7,743.00 Rs ha-1 respectively. It was observed that the benefit cost ratio (B: C) of recommended practice (CFLDs) were 2.1, 2.72 and 2.09 as compared to 1.40, 1.68 and 1.59 in farmer’s practice. The average extension gap 160, 320 and 130 Kgha-1, average technology gap 490,790 and 600 Kgha-1 and technology Index 32.6, 64.3 and 61.3 were recorded. Therefore, the results clearly indicates that the use of improved varieties and package and practices with scientific intervention under frontline demonstration programme contribute to increase the productivity and profitability of pulses in Andhra Pradesh state.
