Abstract:
Front line demonstration of Indian mustard (var. Pusha Tarak) was carried out at farmers’ field of Mandla district (MP) during Rabi seasons 2014-15 and 2015-16 to study the yield gaps between improved package of practices (IP) and farmers’ practices (FP). The findings of result revealed that the yield of Indian mustard in IP was ranged from 1637 kg/ha to 1668 kg/ha whereas in FP it was ranged from 843 kg/ha to 932 kg/ha. The average yield of Indian mustard under IP was recorded higher (1653 kg/ha) as compared to FP (888 kg/ha) which was grown traditionally by the farmers. The per cent increased in yield with IP was recorded in the range of 78.97 to 94.19 over the FP. The extension gap (794 to 736 kg/ha) and technological gap (163kg/ha to 132kg/ha) were declined due to adoption of improved package of practices by the farmers. The average net return of IP was found significantly higher than that of FP. The C:B ratio was 4.85 to 4.90 under IP, while it was 2.85 to 2.95 under the FP.
