Abstract:
Greengram may be seen as one of the alternative crop to rice in <em>kharif</em> season in the pursuit of diversification and sustainability of rice-wheat cropping system in Punjab. Therefore, there is perceptible need to demonstrate the farmers latest improved technologies related to greengram production. The present study was conducted by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, S.A.S. Nagar during <em>kharif</em> season in 2017 with fifty three frontline demonstrations across twenty three villages of Mohali district. Improved and latest technology <em>viz</em>. Yellow Vein Mosaic (YVM) resistance varieties i.e.ML 2056 and MH 421, seed treatment with bio-fertilizer and fungicide, recommended seed rate, proper dose of fertilizers, herbicide application and plant protection measures were demonstrated. The results of demonstrations showed that farmers could increase the Greengram productivity notably by switching over to improved varieties and adoption of improved production technologies. Both the varieties (ML 2056 and MH 421) recorded higher yield (12.2 q/acre and 13.4 q/acre, respectively) than the farmer adopted variety (10.1 q/acre). The increase in the demonstration yield over farmer’s practices was 20.8 per cent (ML 2056) and 32.6 per cent (MH 421). Net return and B: C ratio of demonstration plots were also higher than farmers practice.
