Title : Impact of Integrated Crop Management in Cluster Frontline demonstrations on yield and economics in Sawaimadhopur

Abstract :

To enhance the production and productivity of urdbean one hundred cluster front line demonstrations (CFLDs) were organized during 2017-18 and 2018-19 in two clusters of Sawaimadhopur district, Rajasthan by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Sawaimadhopur. Improved variety pratap urd-1, Seed treatment, Soil test based fertilizer application, line sowing, seed rate and timely pest and weed management were the major interventions of CFLDs. Average urdbean yield under CFLDs was recorded 6.89 q/ha against farmers practices (T-9) 5.03/ha and 37.74 % increase in yield was found in comparison to local check. Maximum net return Rs 23332 and Rs 14400 were recorded under demonstration during both the years 2017-18 and 2018-19, respectively. Average B C ratio was found highest in demonstration plot during both the years 2.49 and 1.60 in 2017-18 and 2018-19, respectively. The values for yield attributes revealed [table-3] that mean of number of branches/plant (7.19), number of pods/plant (24.55), number of grains/pod (6.33) was found higher in demonstration plot as compared to local check (farmers practices).
