Abstract:

Enhancing the production potential and socio economic level of farmers, 126 cluster front line demonstration on chickpea laid out during the year 2015-16 to 2017-18. Area under the demonstration was 90 hectare comprising126 farmer of three villages Nagarda and Bhiyar from Sheo block and Gandhavkhurd from Gudamalani block of Barmer District in Rajasthan. Under the cluster approach for technology dissemination programme recommended intervention i.e. high yielding variety, integrated nutrient management and integrated disease and pest management were attempted. Recommended practice recorded mean yield of 11.94 q/ha, which was 28.64 percent higher over the farmer practices (9.31 q/ha). Additional cost under the intervention of Rs1992 to 3942 gave additional return of Rs. 6245 to 10421 per hectare. Higher side benefit: cost ratio (1.52 – 2.10) was recorded during the study period. The extension gap was observed between 2.11 to 3.08 q/ha, technology gap was observed 8.99 to 13.08 q/ha, whereas technology index 37.46 to 54.50 percent. The favorable benefit ratio exhibited the feasibility of technology demonstrated. Therefore, cluster front line demonstration programme was an effective tool for increasing the productivity of chickpea and changing knowledge, attitude and skill of farmers. This created greater awareness and motivated the other farmers to adopt improved practices of chickpea.
