Abstract:

Front line demonstrations on soybean were organized consecutively for three years in kharif seasons of 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17 under the operational area Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Shajapur village namely Bhadoni, Gopipur, Loharwas, Tilawadgovind and Girwar in Shajapur district of Madhya Pradesh. The package of improved practices demonstrated, including variety JS 95-60, integrated nutrient management (@ 20:60:20:20:: N:P2O5:K2O:S kg/hac + rhizobium @ 5 g/kg + PSB 5 g/kg of seed) integrated pest management (deep ploughing during Aprial + seed treatment with Trichoderma virde @ 5 g/kg seed + trizophos @ 750 ml ) and sowing on ridge and furrow method. The results revealed that the FLD recorded higher yield as compared to farmers practice over the year study. The improved technology recorded average yield of 1638 kg/ha which was 26.97 percent higher than that obtained with farmers practice of 1305 kg/ha. The improved technology gave higher gross return of Rs/ha 50032, net return of Rs/ha 28915 with benefit cost ratio 2.41 as compared to the farmers practice give low gross return of Rs/ha 39798, net return of Rs/ha 19648 with benefit cost ratio 2.
