Abstract:

Sesame is one of the major oilseed crops cultivated in rainfed areas of India, which plays a major role in supplementing the income of small and marginal farmers of Pathankot district of Punjab state. Total 68 front line demonstrations (FLDs) were conducted on farmer’s field in Pathankot district for three consecutive years (2017-18 to 2019-20) in two blocks. Prevailing farmer's practices were treated as control for comparison with demonstrated technology. The result of FLDs conducted by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Pathankot in sesame crop shows a greater impact on farmer’s livelihood due to significant increase in yield (551.6 kg ha-1) over local check (365.3 kg ha-1). The extension gap ranged between 71.0to294kg ha-1, whereas the trend of technology gap ranged between 31to253kg ha-1. The benefit cost ratio (B: C) was recorded higher under demonstrated practice (4.05), while it was 2.27 under check. The results of improved technological intervention brought out 33.77 % increase in yield of sesame. The overall adoption level of demonstrated sesame production technology was increased about 399.5 % due to the adoption of package and practices are followed.
