Abstract:

Soybean is one of the important oilseed crop in India, which plays a major role in supplementing the income of small and marginal farmers. One of the major constraints of traditional soybean farming is low productivity of local varieties and nutrient deficiency in soil. In this point of view Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Bidar conducted Front line demonstration at 145 farmer’s field to demonstrate production potential and economic benefit of improved technologies at adopted farmer’s field during 2012-13 to 2019-20 of seven years study in rainfed condition. The results shows improved production technologies of soybean (Dsb-21) recorded increased mean (average) yield of seven years 12.38 and 18.20 % during study period over local check. The technology gap which shows the gap in the demonstration yield over potential yield were 6.80 q ha-1  over a seven years, The highest extension gap of 7.60 was recorded in during 2017-18 this high extension gap requires urgent attention by the extension and development agencies. The technology index is 40.0 percent during 2014-15 which shows the good performance. There is a need to adopt multipronged strategy that involves enhancing soybean production through area expansion and productivity improvements through better adoption of improved technology. The improved technologies resulted higher mean net income of Rs.59, 500 ha-1 with a benefit cost ratio of 3.64 as compared to local check.
