Promotion of improved production technology of wheat through Front Line Demonstrations in Faizabad District of Uttar Pradesh
Author(s): SB Singh, MK Pandey, SP Giri and Alok Pandey
Abstract: Front line demonstrations of improved wheat production technology on wheat variety HD 2967 were conducted on the farmers’ fields of the Faizabad district of eastern Uttar Pradesh during Rabi 2013 and 2014. Prevailing farmers’ practices were treated as control for comparison with recommended cultivation practices. About 33.04 % higher grain yield was recorded under demonstrations over the farmers’ practices (Farmer Practice-FP). The average extension gap, technology gap and technology index (%) were observed to be 4.48 q ha-1, 9.93 q ha-1 and 10.08, respectively. The technology index (%) was varied from 6.87 – 13.29 % with an average of 10.08 %. Technology index was recorded to be decreased over the successive years of study the successive decreased value of technology index reflected the feasibility of the demonstrated technology in agro - climatic condition of eastern Uttar Pradesh.
