Abstract:

Present investigation was conducted by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Bikaner-II, in four blocks of Bikaner district (Lunkaransar, Chhatargarh, Khajuwala and Pugal) of Rajasthan with the specific objectives to analyze yield gap, economics and extent of farmers’ satisfaction and constraints faced by the farmers’ in growing of wheat. In this study, 232 respondents selected were the beneficiary farmers’ conducted front line demonstrated (FLD) at their fields during 2013-14 to 2018-19. The plot size was 0.4ha for both demonstration and farmers’ practice (=Local check). Before conducting FLD, the respondents were made abreast with the latest recommended package of practices of wheat. The demonstrated technologies under FLD resulted in an increase in wheat yield by 17.21 percent over Local Check. The experimental results envisage, technology gap (TG), extension gap (EG) and technology index (TI) to the tune of 2124 kg/ha, 589kg/ha and 34.49 percent respectively. The economic performance of wheat under FLD fetched an additional return of ₹7,686/ha and ₹2.30/rupee invested. Further, on an average, demonstration plots recorded net return to the tune of ₹37,243; with the B:C ratio of 2.30over the years. However, under farmers’ practice the net return was fetched ₹29,557/ha with the B: C ratio of 2.11. Moreover, respondent satisfaction index (RSI) revealed that 49.52 per centrespondent farmers’ expressed high, 34.28 per cent respondent farmers’ expressed medium and only 16.19 per cent respondent farmers’ expressed low level of satisfaction. High temperature at maturity of wheat in relation to climate change was found to be most confronting constraint as perceived by them and ranked I which was followed by lack of high yielding varieties (II) and frost management and ranked as X in their priority list. The yield of demonstration was found higher than the local check but still lagging behind its potential yield. Thus, the yield could further be increased through effective extension methods like training and demonstration.
