Abstract:

Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L) is one of the major vegetable crops cultivated in India, which plays a major role in supplementing the income of small and marginal farmers of Seoni district of Madhya Pradesh. The front line demonstrations (FLDs) were conducted on farmer’s field in Seoni district of Madhya Pradesh for three consecutive years (2014-15 to 2016-17) at two adopted villages. Prevailing farmer's practices were treated as control for comparison with demonstrated technology. The result of FLDs conducted by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Seoni in tomato crop shows a greater impact on farmer’s livelihood due to significant increase in yield over local check. The extension gap ranged between 78.78 and 136.08 q/ha, whereas the trend of technology gap ranged between 394.58 and 424.71 q/ ha. The benefit cost ratio (B: C) was recorded higher i.e. 2.44 to 2.90 under demonstrated practice, while it was 1.82 to 2.40 under check practice. The results of improved technological intervention brought out 28.47 to 71.92 % increase in yield of tomato. The overall adoption level of demonstrated tomato production technology was increased about 283% due to FLDs, if appropriate package and practices are followed.
