Abstract:

The seed spices constitute an important group of agricultural commodities, playing an important role in our national economy. During 2012-13 share of seed spices in India’s spice area and production is 7.02% and 11.82% respectively. This study was conducted during the year 2016-17. A total of 28 farmers from different categories were selected purposively from Pana (Bayana) villages of Bharatpur district of Rajasthan for conducting Front Line Demonstrations (FLDs) on their field on fennel crop. Materials for the present study comprised of four high yielding fennel varieties viz, RF (Rajastha Fennel)-205, RF-125, RF-145 and RF-101 with the recommended package of practices. The need based plant protection chemicals were used to control the insect-pests. The study indicated that under diversified agro-climatic conditions, all four varieties of fennel have given encouraging results over farmers practice and have potential to perform well in flood prone eastern plain zone 3B of Rajasthan with timely management practices and mitigate the extension gap. However, variety RF-125 gave best results by producing 23.80q/ha that was 18.41 % higher than the farmers practice. Simultaneously efforts need to be made to reduce the technology gap described in this paper. In economic terms, an additional cost mainly for inputs was increased slightly in FLDs over local check (farmers’ practices). However, it was recovered by increasing gross and net return substantially and resulted in more benefits cost ratio than the local check. The use of improved production technologies with timely systematic management would increase productivity of fennel. This will substantially increase the income as well as the livelihood of the farming community who are mainly associated with this crop.
