Abstract: Front Line Demonstration is an appropriate tool to demonstrate recommended technologies among the farmers. Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Burhanpur (M.P.) conducted 50 demonstration on soybean from 2010-11 to 2014-15 in adopted villages. The critical inputs were identified in existing production technologies through bench mark survey. The recommended packages of practices were adopted by the farmers in all the villages. The training program me of different aspects of crop production technologies were organized among beneficiaries and other participating farmers. The average of five years data indicated that an average yield of demonstration plot exhibited 20.49qt./ha. as against local check 15.69qt./ha. with an additional yield of 4.80qt./ha. and increased average soybean productivity by 31.03%. The average technological gap and technological index were found to be 4.51qt./ha. and 18.03%, respectively.
