Demonstration is very important concept in agricultural extension not only improving farmer explicit knowledge but also tacit knowledge. One of the most important types of demonstration is front line demonstration where, the field demonstrations conducted under the close supervision of scientists of the National Agriculture Research System because the technologies are demonstrated for the first time by the scientists themselves before being fed into the main extension system of the State Department of Agriculture. Indian council of agricultural research, New Delhi has started front line demonstration through Krishi Vigyan Kendras to accelerate the production of crops; Technologies generated by scientist are of no use unless adopted by farmers. The present study was conducted in Bharuch District. Total 100 green gram farmers selected from 10 villages for the study following simple random sampling. The ex-post –facto research design was used for study. The finding revealed that great majority of beneficiary (80.75 per cent) of farmers had high to medium and non-beneficiary (80.35 per cent) of farmers had low to medium level of knowledge about improved agricultural technologies of green gram crop.
