Abstract:

Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Lam Guntur has conducted Cluster Front Line Demonstration on Black gram variety TBG-104 at farmer fields in the two adopted villages namely Pamulapadu and Chinaparimi during Kharif 2017 under National Food Security Mission, Govt. of India, scheme. The KVK Scientists has conducted 50 Cluster frontline demonstrations in 20 hectare area at two different locations in Guntur district. The increase in yields of black gram crop under cluster front line demonstrations was attributed to spreading of improved technologies viz. YVM resistant variety, seed treatment with bio-fertilizers, use of recommended seed rate, proper dose of fertilizers and plant protection measures. The results revealed that the highest seed yield was obtained in demonstrated plots with an average of 17.85 q/ha as compared to farmers practice plots with an average of 14.8 //ha. An average extension gap between demonstrated Practices and farmers practices was recorded 3.05 q/ha. Higher net return (71510 Rs/ha) was obtained in the demonstration plots compared to farmers practice plots (50975 Rs/ha). Further Benefit cost ratio was recorded higher in front line demonstrations (3.37) as compared to farmers practice plots (1.98).
