Abstract:

Performance of Cluster bean (Cyamopsis tetragonoloba) was demonstrated to popularize the variety MDU 1 among the farmers of Thiruvarur district in Cauvery Delta Zone of Tamil Nadu by ICAR-Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University during 2015-16 on farmer’s field. Cluster bean cultivar “MDU 1” and “local variety” were used for the demonstration during two seasons for onsite acceptance. Farmers were encouraged and educated for all the updated technological aspects of cluster bean cultivation from seed treatment to harvesting. Results of front line demonstration revealed that MDU 1 variety recorded 39.41 per cent augmented yield (119.0 q/ha) over the local check variety (85.0 q/ha). The high yielding MDU 1 cluster bean variety recorded a net return and cost benefit ratio of Rs. 60,928 and 2.90 respectively, where as in the local cultivar it was only Rs. 29,500 and 1.98 respectively. Subsequently this positive result encouraged 100 farmers in Thiruvarur district to start up the small scale farming of cluster bean with the technical direction suggested by ICAR-KVK, Thiruvarur.
