Abstract:

The study was conducted in a farmer's field of Rajkot district, Gujarat, to assess the impact of integrated nutrient management (INM) of tomato crop during Kharif (2017 to 2019) with 30 numbers of farmers. Front line Demonstration was conducted by foliar spraying of multi-micronutrient formulation Grade IV (Fe-Mn-Zn-Cu-B, 4.0-1.0-6.0-0.5-0.5 %) @ 1% at 45, 60 and 75 DAS in addition to a recommended dose of fertilizers (75-37.5-62.5 N-P2O5-K2O kg/ha) to tomato for getting higher yield and net return. The demonstrated technologies were performed better in all years compare to farmer’s practices. In the demonstrated plot, the average yield of three years was recorded 275.86 q/ha as compared to local practices 247.83 q/ha. The average percent increase in yield of the demonstrated plot was recorded 9.75 % during the three years of programs. The technology gap, the Extension gap, and technology index values were 40.7 q/ha, 28.03 q/ha, and 12.85 %, respectively. The research practices gave higher average gross return (Rs. 206531/ha), net return (Rs. 145837/ha) with a higher B: C ratio (1:3.36) as compared to the framer’s practices. By conduction front line demonstrations on farmer’s field, there was a significant increase in the knowledge level of the farmer’s and the majority of farmers showed a high level of satisfaction about INM Technology in tomato.
