Abstract:

Rapeseed is grown in irrigated and non-irrigated condition as a rain fed crop. Production  of rapeseed  is  also  limited  owing  to  non  adoption  of recommended agronomic which reduce the yield to a greater extent. The present study was carried out in 23 villages of Banda district of Bundelkhand, Uttar Pradesh, to know the impact and yield gaps between improved package of practices (IP) under Front Line Demonstration (FLD) and existing farmer’s practice (FP) of mustard crops. Yield attributes of both demonstration and farmers’ practice were recorded and their yield gap, technology gap, extension gap and technology index were analysed. The study shows that the yield of rapeseed –mustard in IP ranged from 11.75 qha-1 to 13.75 qha-1 whereas in FP it ranged between 08.55 qha-1 to 10.45 qha-1. The per cent increase in yield with IP over FP was recorded in the range of 29.19 to 44.23 percent. The technological gap and extension gap were ranging between 1.50–3.25 qha-1 and 3.05–3.68 qha-1, respectively and the technological index 10.00 to 21.67 percent was recorded. The benefits cost ratio was 1.8- 3.5 under demonstration, while it was 1.4 to 2.2 under farmers practice. The result convincingly brought out that the yield of oil seed can be increase with the intervention on recommended package of practices. This also improved linkages between farmers and scientists, and built confidence for adoption of the improved technology.
