Abstract:
A package of technology interventions through frontline demonstration was conducted in rabi season of two consecutive years 2017-18 and 2018-19 for enhancing the yield of lentil by managing the infestation of fusarium wilt, insect attack especially aphid and poor soil nutrition at farmer’s field in following manner: Soil amendment with Trichoderma spp. (@ 5 kg/ha) and PSB (@ 5 kg/ha) incorporated in vermicompost 1 ton/ha + Seed treatment with Carbendazim @ 2 g/kg seed and Rhizobium spp. @10 g/kg seed +Spray of Imidachloprid (17.8 SL) @250 ml ai/ha. It resulted in reduction in wilt incidence (77.27 %, 71.80%) and aphid population (62.5%, 52.63%) demonstration plot in comparison to farmer’s plot in the year 2017-18 and 2018-19 resulting in total increase in yield to 53.76% and 44.87% in 2017-18 and 2018-19 respectively. The technology interventions seems more viable and beneficial for farmers with higher Benefit cost ratio which increased up to 2.96 and 2.52 in demonstration plot in comparison to farmer’s plot 2.82 and 2.45 in 2017-18 and 2018-19 respectively.
