SB Singh, MK Pandey, SP Giri and Alok Pandey
Front line demonstrations of improved wheat production technology on wheat variety HD 2967 were conducted on the farmersâ€™ fields of the Faizabad district of eastern Uttar Pradesh during Rabi 2013 and 2014. Prevailing farmersâ€™ practices were treated as control for comparison with recommended cultivation practices. About 33.04 % higher grain yield was recorded under demonstrations over the farmersâ€™ practices (Farmer Practice-FP). The average extension gap, technology gap and technology index (%) were observed to be 4.48 q ha-1
, 9.93 q ha-1
and 10.08, respectively. The technology index (%) was varied from 6.87 â€“ 13.29 % with an average of 10.08 %. Technology index was recorded to be decreased over the successive years of study the successive decreased value of technology index reflected the feasibility of the demonstrated technology in agro - climatic condition of eastern Uttar Pradesh.
