Abstract:

Sesamum indicum L., commonly known as sesame, is one of the oldest oilseed crops. Worldwide, it is used for its nutritional, medicinal, and industrial purposes. The sesame seed or its powder or its oil used in various Indian dishes as a flavoring agent. In India the sesame crop can be cultivated as kharif, summer and also semi-rabi crop and 75 percent of sesame crop cultivated during the kharif season in India. One of the major constraints of traditional sesame farming is low productivity due to use local varieties and other factors. To replace this anomaly, Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Karauli has conducted frontline demonstration at adopted farmer’s field. The results of FLDs shows that cultivation of high yielding variety of sesame (RT-351) recorded increase yield of 25.22, 12.00 and 23.63% during kharif 2015, 2016 and 2017, respectively over local check. The technology gap which shows the gap in the demonstration yield over potential yield were 5.76, 6.50 and 6.80 q/ha for kharif 2015, 2016 and 2017, respectively. The highest extension gap of 1.30 was recorded in during kharif 2017 and this high extension gap requires urgent attention by the extension and development agencies. The technology index is 42.40, 35.0 and 32.0 percent during 2015, 2016 and 2017, respectively which shows the good performance. There is a need to adopt multi-pronged strategy that involves enhancing sesame production through area expansion and productivity improvements through better adoption of improved technology.
