Abstract:

Maize is an important staple food of the tribal district of Pratapgarh. Farmers can obtain higher yield and returns in rabi maize than kharif maize. But lack of suitable high yielding variety as well as poor knowledge about rabi maize production practices are ascribed as main reasons for low productivity of maize in the district. Front line demonstration is an effective and appropriate tool to demonstrate recommended technologies among the farmers. To popularize rabi maize production, Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Pratapgarh (Rajasthan) conducted 327 demonstrations on rabi maize from 2012-13 to 2018-19 in ten adopted villages. The critical inputs were identified in existing production technology through meeting and group discussion with the farmers. The seven years data revealed that an average yield of demonstration plot was obtained 60.91 q/ha over local check (51.85 q/ha) with an additional yield of 9.06 q/ha and average productivity increased by 17.55 %. The average technology gap and technology index were observed 14.09 q/ha and 18.79 %, respectively.
