Abstract:

The study was conducted in the different Block of Patna district in Bihar under Frontline Demonstration by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Agwanpur, Barh, Patna through coordinating Institution Bihar Agricultural University, Sabour, Bhgalpur, Bihar. Demonstration with Zero Tillage wheat has shown primarily positive impacts on wheat crop management, particularly through reduced input needs combined with potential yield increase. To evaluate the economics of high yielding variety (HD 1563) and their utilisation in zero tillage to improve income of farmers and agricultural productivity, the utilisation of high yielding variety under frontline demonstration programme was demonstrated and calibrated using the data of a field experiment in Pandarak, Ghoshwari and Barh Block of Patna district. The average yield of high yielding variety (HD 1563) was recorded 34.1 q/ha over conventional sowing it is 27.9 q/ha by using local variety of wheat. In another case study, the average yield in zero-tillage method was recorded 36.6 q ha-1 over conventional sowing it is 27.4 q/ha by using local variety of wheat. The average yield of HD 1563 was 34.1 q/ha and yield of zero tillage technique was 36.6 q/ha. The data collected from the field were analysed and the result of the study in respect of percentage increase in yield in HD 1563 with ZT increased 7.33% over farmers practice by using HD 1563. The B:C ratio was observed higher side by using HD 1563 is 1.6 as compared to conventional method sowing of wheat is 1.4. The B: C ratio was observed higher side in zero-tillage method is 1.6 as compared to conventional method sowing of wheat is 1.5. The finding have clearly established that wheat sowing can be advanced in yield by using HD 1563 over utilisation of local variety of wheat, under zero tillage method it also clearly established that wheat sowing can be advanced in yield over conventional tillage system.
