Yield gap analysis in vegetable crops through on farm testing

Author(s): Katiyar H, Verma SK, Singh K, Chandra N and Lodhi SK
Abstract: Most of the vegetable crops are grown in Shahjahanpur district. Farm Science Centre known as Krishi Vigyan Kendra laid down On Farm Testing (OFT) on three vegetable crops i.e. Bottlegourd, Cauliflower and Chilli by introducing hybrid varieties and applying scientific package of practices in their cultivation. The productivity and economic returns of Bottlegourd, Cauliflower and Chilli in advanced technologies were calculated and compared with the corresponding farmer's practices (local checks). All the three vegetable crops recorded higher gross returns, net return and benefit cost ratio in advanced technologies as compared to the plots where farmers were using traditional practices in their cultivation. It was found that farmers were using old varieties of vegetable crops without proper use of recommended scientific package of practices. So it is suggested that location-specific integrated approaches would be needed to bridge the productivity gap of the vegetable crops grown in the district.
