Abstract:

Krishi Vigyan Kendra conducted front line demonstration on Mustard variety PM-26 and Giriraj at farmers’ fields in district Barmer during years 2015-16 to 2018-19. The productivity and economic returns of Mustard in demonstrated plots were calculated and compared with the corresponding local check. The data obtained was pooled for four years. It was observed that on an average 32.18 percent higher grain yield was recorded in demonstration plots than the local check. The extension gap, technology gap and technology index were 3.90 q/ha, 3.27 q/ha and 16.32 percent, respectively. An additional investment of Rs. ha coupled with scientific monitoring of demonstration and non-monetary factors resulted in additional return of Rs. 16576/ha over the farmers practices. Fluctuating minimum selling price of Mustard during different years influenced the economic returns per unit area.
