Abstract:

The experiment was conducted at Rukundipur village, Malda, WB, during kharif season of 2017-18 and 2018-19. The results showed 11.62-31.07% and 7.25-25.73% yield increase in demonstrated plots over control during respective years. Variety PU-31+seed treatment with Rhizobium sp. and PSB@10 g/kg + cow dung manure@750kg/ha, Trichoderma viridae@1.5kg/ha and Pseudomonas fluorescence @1.5kg/ha + Boron20% @1g/L + Dichlorvos 76% EC @ 1ml/L, Azadirachtin 10,000 ppm @ 1.5ml/L and Yellow Traps @ 15/acre + mixture of Mancozeb 50% and Carbendazim 25% WS @ 2.5gm/L recorded average highest yield (15.00 and 15.51q/ha) during respective years. The same trend was found in gross (Rs. 78456 and Rs. 77594/ha) and net returns (Rs. 63003 and Rs. 62358/ha) and benefit cost ratio (4.08 and 4.09) in T8 during respective years. The extension gap, technology gap and technology index were 2.8 and 2.08q/ha, 2.9 and 2.4q/ha and 17.88% and 15.00% during respective years. It can be concluded that this technology was effective for increasing productivity of Black gram through changing knowledge, attitude and skill of farmers and creating awareness and motivating other farmers to adopt this practice.
