Abstract:
The present study was conducted by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Bharuch during 2016, 2017 and 2018 in the monsoon seasons with field surveys and one hundred fifty cluster frontline demonstrations (CFLDs) across twelve villages of Bharuch district of Gujarat. The results of survey showed that cultivation of VYM susceptible local varieties is the major cause of low yield. The data on demonstrations revealed that farmers could enhance the black gram productivity remarkably by switching over to YVM resistance variety ‘GU-1’. Postponing date of sowing helped farmers to overcome the problem of early maturity in ‘GU-1’ variety. From the CFLDs, it was observed that the black gram variety ‘GU-1’ recorded the higher yield (905 kg/ha) compared to the farmers' practices variety (704 kg/ha). The increase in the demonstration yield over farmer’s practices was 28.66 %. Technology gap and the technology index values were 295 kg/ha and 24.58, respectively.
