Abstract:

Front Line demonstrations (FLDs) are the important extension techniques to convince the farmers about latest farm technologies. The present study was conducted to assess the impact of frontline demonstrations Bengal gram crops conducted in the Central Plateau Region of Maharashtra and the Malwa plateau of Madhya Pradesh. Study revealed that improved cultivation practices comprised under FLDs viz., recommended varieties, seed rate, timely sowing and plant protection technology resulted in increase in yield in gram crop over the check plots. Technology gaps, extension gaps and technology indices were calculated to analyse the performance of these front line demonstrations at farmers’ fields which indicate the role of extension functionaries to act in a mission mode to fill the gaps and make the region self-sufficient in pulses.
