Abstract:

Green gram (Mungbean) is an important pulse crop of India next to tur and blackgram. It plays an important role in enhancing the income of small and marginal farmers of Southern Karnataka. The production of greengram in district is very less as compared to state and national average. However, the domestic requirements are also higher, due to this greengram is being imported. With this the ICAR-Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Chamarajanagar district conducted 50 frontline demonstrations on greengram covering an area of 20 ha of farmers’ fields in villages viz., K. Mookalli, Sappayyanapura, Hanahalli, Kotamballi and Taggaluru during the year 2018 and 2019 to exhibit latest production technologies in comparison with farmer’s practice. Demonstrated technologies comprised recommended seed rate, sowing method, nutrient management and pest and disease management and adoption of whole package of practices for the crop. The study revealed that the demonstrated technology recorded a mean yield of 545.5 kg/ha which was 182.1 % higher than obtained with farmers’ practice (193.3 kg/ha). Higher Benefit: Cost ratio of 1.38 was obtained with improved technologies in comparison to farmers’ practices (0.52). The frontline demonstrations conducted on green gram at the farmers’ field revealed that the adoption of improved technologies significantly increased the yield as well as yield attributing characters of crop as compared to the farmers’ practices. Therefore, 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 for realizing higher returns.
