Abstract:

Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L) is a predominantly rabi seed spices crop of Rajasthan. In Rajasthan it is grown in 157 thousand ha area with production of 190.36 thousand tones with productivity of 1212 Kg. /ha. One of the major constraints of its low productivity is non adoption of improved technologies. To demonstrate this 65 Front line demonstrations (FLDs) were organized by KVK, Banswara between 2013-14 and 2016-17 under tribal sub plan of ICAR- NRCSS, Tabiji Ajmer. The Economics and benefit cost ratio of both control and demonstrated plot was worked out. An average of Rs. 54022 gross return was recorded under recommended practices, while it was Rs. 37597 under farmers practice. Benefit cost ratio was 2.25–2.41 under demonstration, while it was 1.61–1.69 under control plots. By conducting FLDs of proven technologies, yield potential and net income from fenugreek production technology can be enhanced to a great extent with increase in the income level of the farming community.


Keywords: Technology, Yield, FLD, Benefit cost ratio, Fenugreek.
