Abstract:

Front line demonstration is an important tool for transfer of technology to end users that directly impact on adoption and area expansion of the technology. Kharif Onion is grown in the district for higher income but the productivity is low due to lacking in knowledge of cultivation technology, lacking of high yielding variety and no management of soil borne disease. For increasing the productivity of the kharif onion and adoption of improved technologies, Front line demonstrations on yield enhancement by managing the soil borne diseases through enriching the soil with Trichoderma with variety N-53 were conducted at 120 farmers’ fields on 18 ha area. The demonstrations were carried out at Kannauj district of Uttar Pradesh under Central plain agro-climatic zone during kharif season of 2011-12 to 2016-17 for six years. The improved technologies gave higher yields and recorded a mean yield of 176.18 q/ha which was 15.92 percent higher than that obtained with farmer’s practices yields 150.68 q/ha. The improved technologies resulted higher mean net income of Rs. 140145/ha with a cost benefit cost ratio of 3.48 as compared to local check (Rs. 112329/ha, 2.95).
