Abstract:

Rapeseed is one of the most important oilseeds crop in Assam, which plays a major role in enhancement the income of marginal and small farmers of Darrang district. One of the major constraints of low productivity of rapeseed farming is using of local varieties. However, delayed sowing & use of higher seed rate resulting into dense plant population, uneven plant population, uncontrolled weeds, ignorance about recommended doses of fertilizers and lack of plant protection measures were the predominant identified causes of low productivity of oilseeds in the district .To replace this problem, Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Darrang conducted Cluster Front Line Demonstration (CFLD) on high yielding rapeseed varieties viz; TS -38 and TS-46 during two consecutive years from 2016–17 to 2017–18. Cultivation of high yielding rapeseed varieties showed percentage increase of 29.17 and 50.8 respectively over local check. The yield under demonstration plots were 7.75 (TS-38) and 8.75 (TS -46) q /ha as compared to 6.0 and 5.8 q /ha respectively in farmer’s practices.
