Abstract:
Cluster frontline demonstration is a unique approach to enhance the production and productivity of oilseeds crops. Oilseed plays an important role in agriculture economy in many regions of the world. Cluster frontline demonstration is educational activity conducted in a systematic manner at farmers’ fields to show the worth of a new practice/technology. Farmers in India are still producing crops based on the knowledge transmitted to them by their forefathers leading to a grossly unscientific agronomic, nutrient management and pest management practices. As a result of this, they often fail to harvest the potential yields of various crops. In India soybean area is 11.32 mha, production 13.79 mt. and productivity 12.19 q/ha. While in Madhya Pradesh area is 5.40 mha, production 7.08 mt. and productivity 13.10 q/ha during 2016-17. Therefore, the present study was conducted total 31 KVKs under ten agro-climatic zones of Madhya Pradesh. In ten zones 2530 demonstration conducted in 1047 ha area. Whereas use of demonstrated variety JS 93-05, JS 95-60, JS 97-52, JS 20-34, JS 20-29, RVS 2001-4, NRC-7 etc. during 2017-18. The average of demonstration plots was obtained yield 13.95 q/ha, net return 25159 Rs/ha with benefit cost ratio 2.03. The results clearly indicate the positive effects of demonstration practices over the local practices also benefit cost ratio was recorded to be higher under demonstrations against local control treatments during year.
