Ninety Nine technology demonstrations were conducted on sesame in participatory mode covering 40 ha area covering five randomly selected villages in Sidhi district of Madhya Pradesh during 2009-10 to 2016-17 with an objective to assess the production potential of improved cultivars coupled with integrated nutrient, weed and pest management. Results revealed that the seed yield and the number of capsules were 667 kg/ha and 100.16/plant respectively under demonstrated technology over that of local check (farmer’s practices) 506 kg/ha and 74.66 capsules/plant, which was 31.81 and 34.15 percent greater in seed yield and number of capsules/plant respectively. Irrespective of the locations and over the years, technology demonstrations resulted average additional net return of Rs.3598/ha and benefit-cost ratio (0.21) with the additional cultivation cost of Rs.1754/ha over that of farmer’s practices. Technology and extension gap varied from 95 to 250 and 112 to 216 kg/ha irrespective of the years. Technology index ranged between 11.87 to 31.25 per cent during the study period.

Keywords: Sesame, Technology demonstration, Yield, Net return, Technology gap, extension gap and Technology index
