Abstract:

Front line demonstration is one of the important tools for transfer of technology. The present front line demonstration was carried out by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Chandel, ICAR-Manipur Centre to find out yield gaps between demonstration practices under Front Line Demonstration and farmer’s practice of kharif groundnut in 29 ha. in different villages during 2007-08 to 2013-14, respectively. The result indicated that average seed yield of groundnut in demonstration practices ranged between 12.55 and 24.50 q/ha whereas in Farmers practices it was 8.58 to 13.80 q/ha during demonstrated years. The per cent increased in yield with demonstration Practices over Farmer Practices was ranged between 31.63 and 46.12. The technological and extension gap were from 5.50 to 17.45 and from 3.97 to 11.30 q/ha respectively. Similarly, technological index were decrease from 58.17 to 18.33 per cent during the study period. The benefit cost ratio was 1.82 to 3.82 under demonstration, while it was 1.36 to 2.27 under farmer practices. By conducting front line demonstration on improved practices with HYV of proven technologies in farmer’s field, yield potential of groundnut enhanced to a great extent which increased in the income level of farmers and improved livelihood of farming community.
