Soybean (Glysin max L.) is one of the most important oil seed cum pulse crop cultivated in Tirap district of Arunachal Pradesh. The production and productivity of soybean in the district is found to be low, therefore constant attempts are being made to improve the productivity and to increase the area under soybean by adopting high yielding variety along with improved cultivation practices. A total of 10 Cluster Frontline Demonstrations (CFLDs) at farmers’ field were being carried out on soybean in 30 ha areas with 75 farmers to demonstrate production potential and economic benefits of improved practices comprising of high yielding variety JS – 9752 in Tirap District during kharif season 2018-19. Farmers obtained 23.7 q/ha soybean in demonstration plots which was 43.7 per cent higher yield than the farmer’s practice (16.5 q/ha). The average extension gap, technology gap and technology index were 7.2 q/ha, 1.3 q/ha, and 5.2 per cent respectively. The improved practices gave highest gross return (Rs. 94,836/ha), net return (Rs. 59,589/ha) and benefit cost ratio 2.69. It can be concluded that soybean production can be enhanced by encouraging farmers through adoption of improved technologies and providing need based inputs in due time which were followed in CFLDs.
