Impact of front-line demonstrations (FLDs) on productivity and profitability of Maize in district Ramban

Raj Kumar, Parveen Kumar, AS Charak and GN Jha

The present research study was conducted to assess the impact of Front-Line Demonstrations (FLDs) provided by KVK-Ramban on farmer fields. The results of 100 FLDs reveal that average yield of demo plots were 27.6 qtls/ha as compared to 19.2 qtls/ha of check i. e local varieties used by the farmers. The increase in the yield by the varieties provided under FLDs was about 43.75 percent over local ones. While the FLDs gave a net return of rupees 29,200 per hectare, the net return from check was only 15000. Accordingly the benefit cost ratio calculated was much higher for FLDs (2.02) as compared to check (1.59). It is thus clear that profitability from the demo variety was much higher than the local check.
