Mustard is one of the most important oilseed crops of the country. The development of the Agriculture is primarily depends on the application of the scientific technologies by making the best use of available resources. The Present study was carried out at Hanumangarh district of North Rajasthan during the year 2016-17. To increase the production, productivity and quality of agricultural produce, Front Line Demonstrations are being conducted at various farmers’ field. All the recommended Practices were provided to the selected farmers. The data related to the cost of cultivation, production, productivity, gross return and net return were collected as per schedule and analyzed. Result of the present study revealed that the high yielding variety of Mustard RH-749 recorded the higher yield (1450 kg/ha) as compared to local check (1220 kg/ha) traditionally grown by the farmers. The percentage increase in the yield over local check 18.85 % was recorded. The technology gaps in terms of productivity (750 kg/ha) were calculated. The technology index values 34.09 % was recorded. The result of the study indicated the gap existed in the potential yield and demonstration yield is due to soil fertility and weather conditions. By conducting front line demonstration (FLDs) of proven technologies, yield potential of Mustard can be increased up-to great extent. This will substantially increase the income as well as the livelihood of the farming community.
