Six On-farm trailsper year were conducted from 2015-16 to 2017-18 in different agency villages of Rampachodavaram division, East Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh to disseminate the technology of production of portray raised seedlings from single node cuttings of turmeric variety JTS-6. This is a high yielding variety and tolerant to rhizome rot. This method of production needs 1/3rd of seed when compared to conventional method (1000 kg/acre). Field diagnostic visits, regular surveys, farmer scientist interactions and training programmes ensured application of balanced and optimum dose of nutrients and timely plant protection measures. These activities ensured optimum yield (14.6 t/ha) as in JTS-6 with less production cost compared to conventional method of cultivation in local variety. An average net profit of Rs. 2,32,760- was recorded under recommended practice while it was Rs. 2,13,413/- under farmersâ€™ practice. Benefit/ Cost ratio ranged from 2.81 to 3.57 under demonstration while it ranged from 1.98 to 2.51 under check plots. With On-farm trails (OFT) of this technology, it could be shown that famers could get optimum yields, good returns with less production costs from turmeric cultivation
