Front line demonstrations on yield enhancement of fenugreek variety AFg-3 were conducted at different villages of Chittorgarh and Udaipur districts during 2018-19. A total of 60 front line demonstrations were conducted on fenugreek in 12 ha by the active participation of the farmers with the objective of improved technologies of fenugreek production potentials. In the demonstration fields, seed of improved variety (AFg-3)along with all improved packages of practices of fenugreek were applied.The demonstrated plot recorded an average yield ranging from 1514 -1763 kg/ha in the reported villages of Chittorgarh and Udaipur districts. The yield appreciation of 19.20 % and 22.89 % were recorded in demonstration fields of Chittorgarh and Udaipur districts, respectively due to technical intervention.The average extension gap, technology gap and technology index were 286 kg/ha, 1062 kg/ha and 39.32%, respectively over the locations. Front line demonstrations recorded higher net returns of Rs.50204 kg/ha and 40008 kg/ha with 1.72 and 1.42 benefit: cost (B:C) ratio in the respective locations by adopting packages of practices. Present results clearly indicate that the yield and economics of fenugreek can be boost up by adoption of recommended technology which in turn will improve socio-economic status of fenugreek farmers of southern Rajasthan.
