Front Line Demonstrations (FLDs) have been proved the best means for creating awareness of new development in technology generation and to assess the various socio-economic variables for affecting the adoption level of farmers as the regular feedback is a necessary component of these demonstrations. KVK in Khargone district has been organizing FLDs on Bt-cotton, therefore keeping in view the researcher’s interest a research entitled A Study of Technological Gap and Constraints in Cultivation of Bt-cotton under FLD through KVK Khargone (M.P.) was undertaken. Ex-Post facto design was used for this study. The study was conducted in KVK adopted villages in Khargone district. Khargone district comprises of nine blocks. One block from the district i.e. Gogawan will be purposively selected because this block has been selected for Bt-cotton demonstration. Out of this list 12 farmers will be selected randomly from each village. Therefore, 120 Bt-cotton growers from 10 villages will be selected for the present study. As observed the highest technological gap index in use of bio-fertilizer and FYM 44.44 percent followed by Seed treatment 43.33 percent, adopt of Bt cotton 28.61 percent, method of sowing 37.22 percent, weed management 26.11 percent, seed rate 25.56percent, Insect control 22.50 percent, Selection of variety 21.39 percent, disease management 20.56 percent and same technological gap in Sowingspacing20.56 percent, method of land preparation 20.28 percent, Irrigation 18.61 percent and selection of land 18.33 percent in technological gap about Bt cotton production technology.
