Mustard is one of the most important oilseeds crop in India, which plays a major role in supplementing the income of small and marginal farmers of Churu district in the Desert of Rajasthan. One of the major constraints of traditional mustard farming is low productivity due to non-adoption of recommended package of practices and improved varieties. To replace this anomaly, Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Gandhi Vidya Mandir, Sardharshahar, Churu-1 (Rajasthan) had conducted Cluster Front Line demonstrations (CFLDs) at adopted farmer’s fields. Cultivation practices comprised under CFLD viz., use of improved variety, line sowing, balanced application of fertilizers, timely weed management and control of insect-pest through insecticide -pesticides at economic threshold level showed that the yield of mustard increased from 44.31 to 50.08 percent over farmer’s practice during the demonstration period from 2015-16 to 2017-18.The technology gap of 433 kg/ha as minimum during 2016-17 to maximum of 722 kg/ha during year 2015-16 was observed.
