Abstract:

Frontline demonstrations (FLDs) are the important extension techniques to convince the farmers about latest farm technologies. The present study was conducted to assess the impact of frontline demonstrations on summer moong crop conducted in Jalandhar district of Punjab. Study revealed that improved cultivation practices comprised under FLDs viz., recommended varieties, seed rate, timely sowing and plant protection technology resulted in average increase in yield of 18.73 per cent in summer moong over the check plots. Technology gaps, extension gaps and technology indices were calculated to analyze the performance of these frontline demonstrations at farmers’ fields. Lower average technology index of 3.45 per cent indicates the feasibility of summer moong crop in existing farming situation in the district. The improved production technology of these pulses gave higher gross return and net return with higher benefit-cost ratio in FLD plots (2.21) as compared to check plots (1.79).
