The total 505 demonstrations were laid out on 198 ha area of farmer's field as per recommended package of practices of Agriculture University, Kota. The farmers practice was considered as control plot in demonstration cluster. A significant enhancement in the yield of blackgram was recorded over the control by 32.78, 37.65, 47.31, 24.43, 41.30, 23.15 and 22.68 percent for the year 2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16, 2016-17, 2017-18 and 2018-19, respectively. The overall adoption level of blackgran production technology was increased due to cluster front line demonstrations. The local variety replaced by PU – 31in demonstration area and covered 90.23 per cent blackgram area of the Baran district.
