Abstract:
A study on frontline demonstration on chickpea was conducted in different villages of Sheopur district during 2012 to 2016. A total number of 69 farmers were associated under this programme. The demonstrations were laid out on farmers’ field according to recommended package of practices of RVSKVV, Gwalior. The farmers’ practice was considered as control plot in demonstrations. Chickpea yield under FLDs fluctuated over the years of demonstration. Grain yield of demonstration plot of chickpea was 19.2 q/ha (2012-13), 16.98 q/ha (2013-14), 15.82 q/ha (2014-15), 13.92 q/ha (2015-16) and 21.15 q/ha in 2016-17. There was significant increase in yield of chickpea over the control by 20.75%, 14.49%, 17.62%, 18.36% and 16.59% for the year 2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17 respectively. Moreover, production year 2016-17 observed to be more conducive year that registered maximum yield (21.15 q/ha) which was higher than potential yield (20.0q/ha) of chickpea variety RVG 202. The overall technologies adoption of chickpea production was increased by 247.03% due to FLDs. There was significant increase in area under improved varieties from 11.0 ha. to 104 ha. The FLD made positive impact on horizontal spread of recommended improved technologies of chickpea production.
