Abstract:

Soybean had played a pivotal role in socio-economic transformation of majority of small and marginal farming community of central India and continued to contribute significantly to the oil economy of India. The average productivity of soybean presently is staggering around one ton per ha, which is a matter of concern. A study therefore was carried out by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Chittorgarh (Rajasthan) to know the yield gaps between improved package and practices under front line demonstration (FLD) and farmer’s practice (FP) of soybean crop under rainfed conditions. Front line demonstrations (FLDs) were conducted on total 333 farmer’s fields each year to demonstrate the impact of improved agro-techniques on production and economic benefits under rainfed conditions of Chittorgarh in Zone 1V A Sub humid Southern and Plain Arawalli Hills region during Kharif seasons of four consecutive years i.e. 2014 to 2017. The technologies demonstrated in FLDs recorded additional yield over farmer’s practice. Under FLDs the mean grain yield of soybean was increased by 25.55 per cent over FP. The  mean extension gap, technology gap and technology index were calculated as 328.5 kg ha-1, 649.25 kg ha-1 and 29.50 per cent, respectively. Adoption of improved package of practices in soybean cultivation recorded higher mean B: C ratio (1.39) as compared to FP (1.13). Yield enhancement and higher net returns observed under FLDs of improved technologies in soybean. Thus, the productivity of soybean could be increased with the adoption of recommended improved package of practices. The study resulted to convincing the farming community for higher productivity and returns.
