Abstract:
Frontline demonstration was carried out by ICAR-Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Sirsi, Uttara Kannada to study the effect of various bunch caring technologies on yield of elakkibale.

In demo field, yield increased by 19.11 per cent over check. Benefit cost ratio of 2.59 in demo field and 2.30 in check field were recorded.
