Abstract:

The present study was carried out by Mountain Research Centre for Field Crops, Khudwani, Anantnag SKUAST-K under the AICRP-Wheat & Barley programme to identify the yield gaps between improved package and practices in the Front Line Demonstration (FLD) and farmer’s practice (FP) of wheat crop under rainfed temperate Kashmir conditions. Front line demonstrations (FLDs) were conducted on farmers’ fields over an area of 8.1 hectares covering four districts, namely Anantnag, Kulgam, Pulwama and Baramulla during rabi seasons of two consecutive years i.e. 2015-16 and 2016-17. The technologies validated in FLDs documented additional yield over farmers practice. Wheat grain yield was increased by 18.5 percent over the FP. Our study demonstrated that with the adoption of better-quality package of practices wheat productivity could be increased therefore improving the livelihood of farmers.
