Abstract:

Productivity of wheat in India is in quite low and owing to partial adoption of recommended technologies and inappropriate application of critical inputs. It is imperative to demonstrate high yielding variety of wheat GW-366 and GW-451 which is dwarf and resistant to lodging and seed treatment practices with bifenthrin for termite management on farmer’s field for improving the overall production and productivity of wheat under close supervision of the scientist. Krushi Vigyan Kendra, Banaskantha-I conducted 175 front line demonstrations on wheat during 2013-14 to 2019-20 (7 years) to compare the yield levels of wheat under FLD field and farmer’s practices and collect the feedback of farmers for further improvement in research and extension programmes. The results obtained from seven years data revealed that average yield of wheat varieties under demonstration practices was 38.72 q ha-1 as against 31.19 q ha-1 observed under farmer’s practices, thereby recording an average yield increase of 26.32 per cent.  The average extension gap, technology gap and technology index were 7.93 q ha-1, 14.94 q ha-1 and 27.96 per cent, respectively in FLD of wheat. The demonstrated practices gave higher benefit cost ratio ranging from 2.44 to 3.76 with a mean of 2.90 compared to farmer’s practices (2.18).
