Frontline demonstrations of mustard were conducted from 2011-12 to 2017-18 in humid South-Eastern Plain Zone-V of Rajasthan to enhance mustard productivity at the farmers’ field in adopted villages of Kota and Baran district during rabi 2011-12 and 2017-18.. The selection of farmers was done on the basis of Participator Rural Appraisal (PRA) action plan. The results of seven years front line demonstrations indicated that improved varieties i.e. Bio 902, DMH 1, NRCDR 2, Giriraj and NRCHB 101 of mustard with full package under demonstration had significant impact on seed yield compared to local varieties used by farmers. Further, mean results of the study revealed that additional yield (352.18 kg), yield increase (22.21%), gross monetary return (₹66,293) and additional net monetary return (₹ 8619), additional return (₹11778) and IBCR (3.73) from one hectare were obtained over farmer practices by adoption of improved production technology. The improved package of practices i.e. row spacing, fertilizer, irrigation, weed management and plant protection measures including improved varieties NRCHB 101 and Giriraj were followed in demonstrations. Farmers were motivated by results of improved practices applied in the FLDs trials and they would adopt these technologies in the coming years for betterment of farming. It may be concluded that improved production technology of mustard has found more productive, economic viable and also feasible to local conditions as compared to existing farmer practices
