Abstract:
The present study was carried out the evaluating the performance of improved cultivars with scientific package and practices on production, productivity and profitability of banana variety G-9. Frontline demonstrations were conducted during 2016-17, 2018-19 and 2019-20 with evaluation the performance of G-9 variety of banana in 3 different villages located in different blocks under KVK operational area and record the feedback information of farmer’s. The results revealed that average yield of banana under frontline Demonstrations were 483, 489 and 503 q/ha as compare to 420, 424 and 431 q/ ha recorded in farmer’s practice and average yield increase of 15.00, 15.33 and 16.70 per cent, respectively. It was observed that the benefit cost ratio (B: C) of recommended practice (FLD’s) were 2.76, 2.73 and 2.78 as compared to 2.11, 2.19 and 2.13 in farmer’s practice during consecutive years of study blocks. The average extension gap 63, 65 and 72 q/ ha were recorded. Therefore, the results clearly indicate that the use of improved varieties and package and practices with scientific intervention under frontline demonstration programme contribute to increase the productivity and profitability of banana in Bihar state.
