Abstract:

The field study was carried out by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Gajapati to assess the yield gap of toria (Brassica campestris var. toria) through frontline demonstration in north eastern ghat region of Odisha. Toria is most important oilseeds crop after harvest of kharif rice in rainfed areas of Gajapati. Productivity of the crop is lower in farmer’s field due to several constraints. Non-adoption of improved technologies is one of the major causes for its lower productivity. Frontline demonstrations on improved technologies were conducted at 125framers’ fields of Gajapati district in four clusters during rabi season of 2019-20. Improved crop management practices recorded the highest mean seed yield of 7.68 q ha-1 which was 62.83 per cent higher than the yield obtained with farmers practice (4.73 q ha-1). It was also noticed higher mean net return of Rs. 20068.60 with B:C ratio of 1.92 when compared with farmers practice (Rs. 9115 with B:C ratio of 1.92). The average technological gap, extension gap and technological index were recorded 2.32 q ha-1, 2.96 q ha-1 and 23.2 per cent respectively. Due to adoption of improved package of practices, demonstration plots recorded higher average seed yield over local check.
