Author(s): Bishnu Deo Singh, Mrinal Verma, Rjeev Kumar and PC Gupta
Abstract: Cluster Frontline Demonstration was conducted by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Patna, Bihar to study the impact of Cluster Frontline Demonstration with different techniques like use of improved cultivar, seed treatment, weed management and insect-pest management on production and productivity of Rabi crop like Linseed, Mustard, Pea, Lentil and Gram. It was observed that variety Shekhar of linseed performed very well as compared to local variety as there was 28.64 % yield gap between both the varieties. In the same manner, mustard variety RNG-48 was found having 31.98 % higher yield in comparison to the local variety. Field pea variety Prakash performed very well as compared to local variety as there was 31.81% yield gap between both the varieties. In the same manner, HUL-57 of Lentil gave 27.08 % higher yield in comparison to the local variety. BG-372 and GNG 1581 variety of Gram showed 27.32 % & 37.63% higher in yield as compared to the local varieties used by farmers of different blocks of Patna district.
