Abstract:

Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Bhiwani had conducted Front Line Demonstration (FLD) at the farmers’ field in the villages of districts Bhiwani & Dadri during 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-18. The critical inputs were identified in existing production technology through meetings & discussions with farmers. The farming situation of demonstration fields was irrigated, low in nitrogen, medium in phosphorus and potash and the soil was sandy loam. The crop rotation was pearl millet-mustard, cluster bean-mustard and mung bean-mustard. Delayed sowing, use of improper dose of seed and fertiliser, uncontrolled weeds & lack of plant protection measures were predominant identified cause of low productivity of mustard crop in district Bhiwani. In the same sequence the other parameters like technological impact, economical impact & extension gap were analyzed for impact assessment of front line demonstration on mustard crop & feasibility of demonstrated technologies at grass root levels. The results of three years revealed that During the 1st year (2015-16) the variety perform very well with an average yields of 22.20 which was 30.60 % higher than the check variety (17.00 q/ha).  On the basis of 1st year result the demonstration was continued next year i.e during 2016-17 and 2017-18. The three year average data reveals that the grain yield of RH 0749 variety increased by 5.20 q/ha (2015-16), 7.40 q/ha (2016-17) and 7.00 q/ha (2017-18) over the yield obtained under farmers’ practice. The results of FLD’s on mustard variety revealed that increase in yield was ranged between 30.60 % (2015-16) and 47.40 % (2016-17) and got between Rs. 6828 and Rs. 11205 additional returns (Table-4) from demonstrations field over farmers’ practice. This increase was with an extra expenditure of approximately Rs. 1000 per ha which is very less and even small and marginal farmers could also afford. An extension gap ranging from 520-740 kg per hectare was found between front line demonstrations and farmers practices during the different time line.
