Abstract:
The present study was carried out during kharif and rabi season in 08 villages of Sheopur district of Madhya Pradesh during 2014-15. A total 24 frontline demonstration covering an area of 10 ha were conducted on oilseed crops, out of which 12 demonstration were on soybean and 12 on mustard. Under frontline demonstration, improved variety, seed treatment, balanced fertilization, integrated pest management etc. were included as improved technologies. The results of these demonstrations revealed that the soybean and mustard under improved technologies yielded 23.84 and 20.81 percent higher than farmer’s practices. The average yield of oilseed under demonstration [soybean (1496kg/ha) and mustard (1857kg/ha)] were much higher than yield under farmer’s practices [soybean (1208kg/ha) and mustard (1537 kg/ha)]. The improved technology gave higher gross return, net return with higher benefit cost ratio. In spite of increasing in yield technology gap, extension gap and technology index existed.
