Bastar is one of the important district of Chhattisgarh, normally inhabited by tribe, among them, the dominants are Gond, Bhatra, Maria and Muria. These tribes are normally practicing in traditional farming. To make them aware with new technology, Front line demonstration of nine improved varieties viz. Kashi Anupam and Arka vikas in Tomato, Pant samrat in brinjal, Pusa sadabahar in chilli, Arkel in pea, Pusa komal and Pusa phalguni in cow pea, Arka anamika and Pusa A-4 in okra along with recommended technology were demonstrated in randomly selected 120 farmers field in an area of 12 hectares covering five villages of Bastanar block, during 2009 – 2011. Performance of demonstrated varieties was better in terms of yield with a minimum of 23.40 percent in Pea to maximum of 52.30 percent in chilli over the existing local cultivars. The extension index of 18.94 percent to 34.34 percent reflects ample opportunity for seed replacement in demonstrated area. Analysis of data reveals that technology index vary from 11.33 to 19.5 which are on lower side indicating greater scope for adoption of improved vegetable varieties by the farmers.
