Abstract:

The present work was carried out during Rabi season in ten farmer’s field of Rajkot district during 2015-16 to 2017-18 in 12 hectare by active participation of 30 numbers of farmers. This programme is with the objective to demonstrate the improved variety of chickpea GG- 5 for production potential. These focused on increased the chickpea productivity, replacement of old variety with promising high yielding improved variety and get feedback from farmers on the performance of chickpea variety. The demonstrated variety GG – 5 performed better in all yeas compare to farmers practices. In demonstrated plot the average yield of three years was recorded 2590 kg/ha as compared to local variety 2193 kg/ha. The average percent increase in yield of demonstrated plot was recorded 13.66 % during the three year of programmes. Technology gap, Extension gap and technology index values were 410 kg/ha, 396.66 kg/ha and 13.66 %, respectively. The research practices gave higher average gross return (Rs. 140931 /ha), net return (Rs. 83927 /ha) with higher B:C ratio (1:2.46) as compared to framer’s practices. By conduction of front line demonstrations on farmer’s field there was significant increase in knowledge level of the farmer’s and majority of farmer’s showed high level of satisfaction about improved variety GG – 5 of chickpea.
