Abstract:

KVK, Chandgothi, Churu (Rajasthan) conducted total 50 Front Line Demonstrations on cowpea at farmers field in Churu District (Rajasthan) during two consecutive kharif seasons from 2014 to 2015. The farming situation was rainfed and soil was sandy loam low in nitrogen, medium in phosphorus and medium to high in potash. Assessment of gap was done and on the basis of gap assessment, improved recommended technologies were demonstrated. On overall average basis, 19.98 % higher grain yield was recorded under demonstrations than the farmer’s traditional practices (Local check). The extension gap, technology gap and technology index were 195 kg/ha, -170 kg/ha and 16.64 per cent, respectively. An additional investments of Rs 300 per ha consist with scientific monitoring of demonstration and non–monetary factors resulted in additional return of Rs. 6393 per ha. On two year average basis incremental benefit : cost ratio was found 21.31.
