Abstract:

The Present study was carried out at Bharatpur district of Eastern Rajasthan during Kharif 2014. Brinjal 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 brinjal farming is low productivity because of non-adoption of advanced technologies like micronutrients. There was deficiency of zinc in most of the soils of the area. To increase the production, productivity and quality of agricultural produce, front line demonstrations are being conducted at various farmer’s 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 the high yielding variety of brinjal cv. Nunhems BE-707 with the application of zinc sulphate @ 0.25% at 30 and 45 days after transplanting recorded the higher yield (405 q/ha) as compared to farmers practice (368 q/ha) traditionally adopted by the farmers. The percentage increase in the yield over farmers’ practice 10.05was recorded. The technology gap in terms of productivity (45 q/ha.) was computed. The technology index values 10% was recorded. The result of the study indicated the gap existed in the potential yield and demonstration yield is due to soil fertility and weather conditions. By conducting front line demonstion of proven technologies, yield potential of brinjal can be increased upto great extent. This will substantially increase the income as well as the livelihood of the farming community.
