Abstract: Seed spices constitute an important segment of agriculture commodities that play a significant role in Indian economy. Frontline demonstration (FLD) aims to boost productivity by offering necessary inputs as well as enhanced production and good agricultural techniques that have been tested by the researchers. A study has conducted by ICAR-CAZRI, Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Kukma, Bhuj to know about the gaps in performance of high yielding varieties of seed spices in frontline demonstrations (FLDs) and farmer’s practices. The demonstration were conducted on three major seed spices crops namely Fennel (Guj. Fennel-12), Fenugreek (AFg-3) and Isabgol (Guj. Isabgol-4) during 2019-20 to 2020-21. The results of 2 years FLDs indicated that improved varieties with improved package of practice recorded higher yield as compared to farmer’s practice. The improved technologies recorded higher mean seed yield of 2175 kg ha-1, 1055 kg ha-1 and 2305 kg ha-1 in fennel, isabgol and fenugreek respectively, than 1750, 945 and 2055 kg ha-1 under farmers practice. The Highest gross return (Rs. 115300 ha-1), net return (Rs. 77800 ha-1) and benefit cost ratio (3.07) was recorded in fennel crop followed by isabgol and lowest in fenugreek crop. The improved technologies gave higher gross return, net return with higher benefit cost ratio compared to farmer’s practices. The results indicates that adoption of high yielding varieties have increased the production of the seed spices crops in the district. The economic return obtained from the high yielding varieties were also high that indicating the ample scope for the growers in the district. The extension gap is found to be higher in all the three varieties. There is also a need to bridge the extension gap through strengthening the extension activities to encourage the wider adoption of high yielding varieties so that the production and productivities of the seed spices in the district.
