Abstract:
Powarkheda Hoshangabad is located at 22.75°N 77.72°E. on the banks of Tawa and Narmada rivers and Sidhi is situated in Kaymore plateau and satpura hillsh of Madhya Pradesh. Pea is one of the major rabi season vegetable in district. Krishi Vigyan Kendra laid down On Farm Testing Demonstration in the year 2011-12 and 2016-17 introducing new, high yielding variety PSM-3. The OFT were carried out in village Sangakheda district Hoshangabad and village Mamdar in sidhi district in supervision of KVK. The productivity and economic returns of pea in recommended package and practice were calculated and compared with the corresponding farmer’s practices (local check). Improved practices recorded higher yield as compared to farmer’s practices. The improved technology recorded higher yield of 80 q/ha and 70 q/ha in the year 2011-12 and 2016-17, respectively than 65 and 50 q/ha. The average yield increase was observed 31.53 percent In spite of increase in yield of pea, technology gap, extension gap and technology index existed. The improved technology gave higher gross return (160,000 & 140,000 Rs./ha), net return (92,000 & 72,000 Rs./ha) with higher benefit cost ratio (2.35 & 2.06) as compared to farmer’s practices. The variation in per cent increase in the yield was found due to the poor management practices, lack of knowledge and poor socio economic condition. Under sustainable agricultural practices, with this study it is concluded that the OFTs programmes were effective in changing attitude, skill and knowledge of improved package and practices of pea adoption.
