Abstract:

Two hundred thirty two Cluster Front Line Demonstrations on toria were conducted at six different blocks of Lakhimpur district of Assam during 2015-16 to 2018-19. The average yield of toria varieties under demonstration was 982 kg/ha as compared to 641 kg/ha in farmers practice. The highest yield of toria was recorded in Telahi (1055 kg/ha) block followed by Lakhimpur block (992 kg/ha). Among the blocks, the yield gap was higher in Telahi block followed by Lakhimpur ranging from 301 to 420 kg/ha. There is urgent need to make stronger extension services for educating the farmers in the implementation of improved technology. The technology gap of 145 to 252 kg/ha was recorded with the technology index of 12.08 to 21.0 per cent which indicated the need to educate farmers and lower the technology index showed the feasibility of demonstrated improved technology at location specific farmers’ field. The net return (Rs 19,490/ha), additional return (Rs. 12,560/ha), benefit cost ratio (2.37) and incremental benefit cost ratio (14.27) were found higher under improved technology demonstrated at Telahi block as compared to farmers practice.
