Abstract:
Cluster frontline demonstrations (CFLDs) on redgram was conducted by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Malyal in villages namely Kannegundla of Dornakal mandal, Chillamcherla of Maripeda mandal, Vinobanagar of Bayyaram mandal, Mahabubabad district of Telangana state during the kharif season of 2016-2017, 2017-18 and 2018-19 respectively. The results revealed that the variety WRG-65 with seed treatment (imidacloprid @ 2ml/kg + carbendazim @1g/kg +Rhizobium spp @ 25g/kg) + plant protection (Yellow sticky trap + Neem oil + insecticide) nutrient and weed management recorded average highest yield of 1420 kg/ha (2016-17) against the farmers practice of 1030kg/ha. The maximum net returns of Rs. 66250/- during the year 2016-17 and minimum net returns of Rs. 40,500/- during the year 2017-18 were obtained due to variation in MSP sale rates as declared by GOI. The study revealed that an average extension gap was 407 kg/ha between demonstrated technology and farmer’s practice. The study further exhibited a wide technology gap during different years. The average technology gap of all the years was 527 kg/ha. The difference in technology gap in different years was due to better performance of recommended varieties with different interventions and more feasibility of recommended technologies during the course of study. Similarly, the technology index for all demonstrations in the study was in accordance with technology gap. It can be concluded that the red gram production could be enhanced by adoption of improved technologies through Cluster Front Line Demonstrations. Hence, there is a need to disseminate the improved technologies among the farmers with effective extension methods like trainings and demonstrations.
