Abstract:

Longleng district falls under the subtropical hill zone of Eastern Nagaland. Agriculture is the main stay of the people, in which Low land (Pani Kheti) is one of them for their livelihood. Farmers of the district practiced traditional rice cultivation with low yield after maximum inputs due to lack of knowledge of improved cultivation practices. Therefore, Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK) took initiative to replace the farmers’ practices through disseminations of improved technology for enhancing the productivity and income. Before the intervention of new technology, awarness -cum- training programme on lowland rice was organised in the village. All together 16 nos. of farmers were participated in the training programme and took interest for adopt the improved practices. After that hand on training programme of nursery sowing, transplanting was conducted at farmers’ field during the year 2014-15 to 2016-17. Results of improved practiced found that average yield (3 years) was recorded 44.76 q/ha against 32.40 q/ha with farmers practices. Net profit and B:C ratio were recorded Rs.33210/ha, Rs.19080/ha and 2.62, 1.96 with improved and farmers practices respectively. Percentage increase yield and net profit were 38.2 and 73 % with improved practice as compared to tradition cultivation. The successful demonstration on low land rice is by following the principles of “learning and doing” and “seeing and believing”. After the successful intervention of technology, farmers growing new intervention technology of rice cultivation. The impressive performance of the technology awankened the farmers, farm women of the village and neighbouring villages to adopt this technology helps to increase the net income of the farmers.
