The objectives of CFLD was to demonstrate the improved technologies among the farmers recommended by the State Agricultural Universities (SAUs) and the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) Institutes so that it would improve the production and generate interest in the growing of oilseed crops which is losing importance due to stagnation in the yield faced by the farmers while executing the Cluster Frontline Demonstrations.(CFLDs). Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Kaithal conducted 150 cluster frontline demonstrations of Indian Mustard. Cluster Frontline Demonstration (CFLD) is one of the most powerful tools for transfer of technology. Keeping in view of an effective extension approach of CFLD for dissemination of improved varieties of Indian Mustard, an impact assessment of CFLDs conducted by KVK, Kaithal was assessed. The results were compared between CFLD plots & control plots (Farmer Practice). The CFLD on Indian Mustard registered 35.0 percent higher yield over farmer’s practice on an average. The highest yield (19.85 q ha1) was recorded in 2018-19 in CFLD with variety RH-0749,which was 39.78 per cent more yield over the farmers practice(14.20 qha1). Average extension gap was recorded 4.60 q ha1 and average technology gap was recorded 4.70q ha1. The technology index ranged from 17.35 per cent to 21.42 per cent. The results indicated that the cluster frontline demonstration made a good impact on the farming community of Kaithal district as they were motivated by the new agricultural technologies applied in the CFLD of Indian Mustard.
