Abstract:

Lakhimpur is a district of Assam which is most frequently affected by flood due to its topography. During periods of heavy rainfall in this region, sali (winter) rice is mostly affected and farmers suffer a great loss in income. Thus, considering the loss of the farmers, Krishi Vigyan Kendra Lakhimpur has introduced stress tolerant rice variety “Ranjit sub-1” developed by Assam Agricultural University in few pockets of the district. The variety was demonstrated during 2018-19 and 2019-20 using improved cultivation practices. Different data were collected during the demonstrations and comparison was made with farmer’s variety. From the study it has been found that Ranjit sub-1 can survive in submerged condition upto 15 days from date of transplanting and even showed better yielding capacity in comparison to farmer’s variety. Technology gap, extension gap and technology index was also calculated. Also, economic analysis was done where it has been found that net return of Rs. 24460 and Rs. 24600 was obtained for Ranjit sub-1 against Rs. 9700 and Rs. 10698 for farmer’s variety during 2018-19 and 2019-20 respectively. Moreover, benefit cost ratio was found to be 1.58 and 1.54 of Ranjit sub-1 as against 1.31 and 1.35 for farmer’s variety during 2018-19 and 2019-20 respectively. A significant impact of the technology was found among the farmers chosen and as such the variety proved as best suited under climate resilient agriculture.
