Front line demonstration (FLD) is an appropriate means for demonstration as well as transfer of improved agricultural innovations to the farming community. Under centrally sponsored scheme on oilseed production technology under NMOOP scheme, AEEC, Lingsugur has conducted 32 front line demonstrations in farmer’s fields during 2017-18 over an area of 12.8 ha on sunflower production technology to transfer the latest technologies among the farmers of Lingsugur taluka of Raichur district. The overall yield trend in FLD ranged from 785 to 1095 kg/ha with an average of 950 kg/ha which recorded 20.42 per cent higher yield than the farmers practice plot. Obviously, this can be attributed to improved technology as well as improved varieties. The yield levels were considerably low under local practices because of considerable variations in the extent of adoption of recommended package of practices depending upon the amount of risk involved in terms of cost, convenience, skill and knowledge about the concerned practice. The productivity was better over local practice under demonstrations. Hence, sunflower production technology have a broad scope for increasing the area and production at each and every level i.e., Farmers, State and National level.
