Abstract:

Frontline demonstration (FLD) is one of the most powerful tools for transfer of technology. Keeping in view of an effective extension approach attempts are made by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Pratapgarh to know the yield gaps and extent of technology adoption between improved package and practices under Front Line Demonstration (FLD) and farmer’s practice (FP) of mustard crop. Front line demonstrations (FLDs) were conducted at 243 farmers’ fields to demonstrate the impact of improved agro-techniques on production and economic benefits from 2014-15 to 2018-19. The technologies demonstrated in FLDs recorded additional return over farmers practice. Under FLDs the yield of mustard was increased by 19.97 per cent over farmers practice. The extension gap, technology gap and technology index were calculated as 2.66 q/ha, 6.03 q/ha and 27.18 per cent, respectively. Adoption of improved package of practices in mustard cultivation recorded higher B:C ratio (2.25) as compare to FP (1.79). Yield enhancement and higher net returns observed under FLDs through improved technologies of mustard. Thus, the productivity of mustard could be increased with the adoption of recommended improved package of practices. The present study resulted to convincing the farming community for higher productivity and returns.
