The objective of this research was to determine the effectiveness of enhanced cultivars in terms of bottle gourd output, productivity, and profitability utilizing realistic tools and techniques. In order to assess the success of the Narendra Shankar Lauki-4 of bottle gourd and obtain input from farmers, frontline demonstrations were held in the Sakra and Kudhani blocks of the district Muzaffarpur in 2020-2021 and 2021-2022. The results showed that from the 248 and 260 q/ha recorded in farmer practice to the 302 and 323 q/ha during frontline demonstrations, the average bottle gourd production increased by 21.77 and 24.23 percent, respectively. During the course of subsequent study blocks, it was found that the benefit-to-cost ratios (B:C) for proposed practices were 2.11 and 2.13 as opposed to 1.89 and 1.88 in Farmers' practices. The typical extension gap was 58.5 q/ ha, while an average technology gap was 57 q/ ha. The results so clearly demonstrate that the frontline demonstration program's use of superior varieties, packaging, and techniques combined with scientific intervention increased the productivity and profitability of vegetables in the state of Bihar.Pages: 611-613 | Views: 62 | Downloads: 3Download Full Article: Click Here
