Abstract:

The important extension techniques to persuade the farmers about latest farm technologies are frontline demonstrations (FLDs). The present study was conducted continuously during three years from rabi 2015-16 to 2017-18 to assess the impact of 410 frontline demonstrations conducted on chickpea and lentil in 164 ha area across thirteen villages of Sagar district of Madhya Pradesh falls under Vindhyan Plateau Agro Climatic Zone. The results of demonstrations showed that farmers could increase the chickpea and lentil productivity remarkably by switching over to improved variety and adoption of improved production technology. It was observed from the FLDs that the improved chickpea variety JG 63 recorded the higher seed yield (1537 kg ha-1) compared to the farmers' practices variety (992 kg ha-1). The increase in the demonstration yield over farmer’s practices was 55.27 percent. In case of lentil technology demonstrations, the average seed yield was recorded to be 1218 kg ha-1 using JL 3, PL 8 and IPL 316 varieties over farmer's practice (737 kg ha-1) with the average increase of 64.45 percent. The overall impact of frontline demonstrations on adoption of chickpea and lentil production technology was 461 and 334 percent respectively. It was noticed from the front line demonstrations conducted on chickpea and lentil that the average technology gap values were 663 and 282 kg ha-1 respectively. The technology index was recorded to be 30.12 and 18.82 percent respectively in chickpea and lentil which reflect the superior performance of demonstrations.
