Abstract:

Cluster frontline demonstrations (CFLDs) on greengram was conducted by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Malyal in villages namely Redyala, Gudur, Gouraram Mulakalapalli, Apparajupalli of Mahabubabad district of Telangana state during the rabi season of 2016-2017, 2017-18 and 2018-19 respectively. The results revealed that the variety MGG-347 with seed treatment (imidacloprid @ 2ml/kg + carbendazim @1g/kg +Rhizobium spp @ 25g/kg) + plant protection (Yellow sticky trap + Neem oil + insecticide) nutrient and weed management recorded average highest yield of 1397 kg/ha (2016-17) against the farmers practice of 1157kg/ha. The maximum gross returns of Rs. 82500/- and net returns of Rs. 57925/- during the year 2017-18 and minimum of Rs. 68000/- and net returns of Rs. 45500/- during the year 2018-19 were obtained due to variation in MSP sale rates as declared by GOI. The study revealed that an extension gap of 140 to 350 kg/ha was found between demonstrated technology and farmer’s practice and on average basis the extension gap was 240 kg/ha. The study further exhibited a wide technology gap during different years. It was lowest (40 kg/ha) during 2016-17 and highest (140 kg/ha) during 2018-19. The average technology gap of all the years was 103 kg/ha. The difference in technology gap in different years was due to better performance of recommended varieties with different interventions and more feasibility of recommended technologies during the course of study. Similarly, the technology index for all demonstrations in the study was in accordance with technology gap. It can be concluded that the green gram production could be enhanced by encouraging the farmers through adoption of recommended technologies which were followed in the Cluster Front Line Demonstrations. Further, it was found that the adoption of improved technologies significantly increased the yield and net returns to the farmers. Hence, there is a need to disseminate the improved technologies among the farmers with effective extension methods like trainings and demonstrations.
