Abstract:

Pulses being rich in quality protein, minerals and vitamins are inseparable ingredients of diet of majority of Indian population. Despite of their high nutritive value and important role in sustainable agriculture desired growth rate in production could not be witnessed. The domestic production of pulses is consistently below the targets and actual domestic requirements are also higher, due to this pulses are being imported. The Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Jodhpur-II has carried out frontline demonstrations on greengram crop covering an area of 40 ha at farmer's field to exhibit latest production technologies and compared it with farmer's practices. In this study, total 100 frontline demonstrations were conducted at farmer's fields in villages i.e., Palli-phanta, Bendokabera, Padasla and Kali-mali of Jodhpur district of Rajasthan state during 2018 and 2019, to demonstrate production potential and economic benefit of improved technologies comprising sowing method, nutrient management and weed management and adoption of whole package of practices. After sowing, application of weedicide Imazethapyr 10SL as early post emergence at 50 ga.i. per ha in 500 liters of water used for effective control of the weeds during kharif season under rainfed conditions. The findings of the study revealed that the demonstrated technology resulted in a mean yield of 905 kg/ha which was 36.3% higher than obtained with farmers practices (555 kg/ha). Mean net income of Rs. 41947/ha with a benefit:cost ratio of 3.86 was obtained with improved technologies in comparison to farmers practices (22227). The frontline demonstrations conducted on greengram crop at farmer’s field revealed that the adoption of improved technologies significantly increased the yield as well as yield attributing traits of crop and also the net returns higher than the farmer’s practices. So, there is a need to disseminate the improved technologies among the farmers with effective extension methods like training and demonstrations. The farmers should be encouraged to adopt the recommended package of practices realizing for higher returns.
