Abstract:

The study was carried out by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Jakhdhar, Rudraprayag to know the yield gaps between improved package and practices under front line demonstration (FLD) and farmer’s practice (FP) of Soybean crop under rainfed conditions. Front line demonstrations (FLDs) were conducted on 30 farmer’s fields each year to demonstrate the impact of improved agro-techniques on production and economic benefits under rainfed conditions of Uttarakhand in Central Himalayan Region during kharif seasons of two consecutive years i.e. 2011 and 2012. The technologies demonstrated in FLDs recorded additional yield over farmer’s practice. Under FLDs the grain yield of Soybean was increased by 30.96 per cent over FP. The extension gap, technology gap and technology index were calculated as 3.77q/ha, 14.06 q/ha and 46.86 per cent, respectively. Adoption of improved package of practices in Soybean cultivation recorded higher B: C ratio (1.89) as compared to FP (1.53). Yield enhancement and higher net returns observed under FLDs of improved technologies in soybean. Thus, the productivity of Soybean could be increased with the adoption of recommended improved package of practices. The study resulted to convincing the farming community for higher productivity and returns.
