Net return and Cost benefit ratio of Sree vijay and local cultivar were Rs. 175000 and 1.42 and 90000 and 1.66, respectively.  Overall, the results of our study suggests that front line demonstration (FLDS) on farmer’s field has the potential for in knowledge of the farmer as well as showed high level at satisfaction about technology.
