Abstract

Pulses are the main source of protein particularly for vegetarians. Mungbeans can be consumed solely, or combined with rice to make khichari, or combined with vegetables and greens to make hearty soups or grind into flour to be used to make crepes or added to breads. Turmeric, cumin, dried ginger and coriander are some spices that work very well with mungbeans. The latest concept in this series is “Front Line Demonstration” which is new concept of field demonstration evolved by the ICAR with the inception of the technology mission on oilseed and pulses crops in mid nineteen eighty. The study was conducted in 12 FLD villages of four panchayat samiti namely, Nagaur, Degana, Didwana and Merta panchayat samities of Nagaur district, adopted by the KVK, Nagaur were included and a sample of 75 beneficiary’s farmers were selected randomly. Similarly, 75 non-beneficiary farmers from 12 another non FLD villages from nearby areas of the adopted villages. It was found that the beneficiary farmers possessed maximum adoption gap regarding “Plant protection measures”, while least adoption gap was observed about the practices “Sowing of seed and spacing” of improved mungbean production technology. Whereas, the non-beneficiary farmers possessed maximum adoption gap regarding “organic manure and fertilizer management”, whereas, the least adoption gap was found about “Sowing of seed and spacing” of improved mungbean production technology.
