Abstract:

The Present study was carried out at Bharatpur district of Eastern Rajasthan during Kharif 2014.Front line demonstrations were conducted on tomato by the active participation of the farmers with the objective of improved technologies of tomato production potential. The improved technologies consist hybrid variety (Nunhems NP-1001), balanced fertilizers (soil test based) application and integrated pest and disease management, etc. Tomato is one of the most important vegetable crops of the country. The development of the Agriculture is primarily depends on the application of the scientific technologies by making the best use of available resources. One of the major constraints of traditional tomato farming is low productivity because of non-adoption of advanced technologies like improved varieties. To increase the production, productivity and quality of agricultural produce, front line demonstrations are being conducted at various farmers’ field. All the recommended practices were provided to the selected farmers. The data related to the cost of cultivation, production, productivity, gross return and net return were collected as per schedule and analyzed. Result of the present study revealed that higher yield in the demonstrations was recorded (451 q/ha) as compared to farmers practice (415 q/ha) traditionally adopted by the farmers. The percentage increase in the yield over farmer’s practice 8.67 was recorded. The extension gap, technology gap and technology index were computed 36 q/ha, 49 q/ha and 17% respectively. The demonstrated field gave higher net return Rs.165500 and B:C ratio 1:3.75.The result of the study indicated the gap existed in the potential yield and demonstration yield is due to soil fertility and weather conditions. Present results clearly show that the yield and economics of tomato can be boost up by adopting recommended technologies.
