Effect of the technology/process

Production :   6.85 q from 0.06 ha of land by individual farmer

Productivity :  114.2q/ha

Economic gains (per unit expenditure, gross income, net income, C:B ratio) :

Cost of Cultivation: Rs.33000.00 per ha

Gross income : Rs. 114217.00 per ha

Net income: Rs. 81216.00

B:C ratio: 2.46

  1. Suitability in the existing farming/cropping systems

It is a leguminous crop and it takes about 3 ½ months time to complete its life cycle. According to the farmers view they can get their land free 15 days earlier than that of wheat which helps them to sow the next crop early.

  1. Acceptance of technology/process in terms of views of the farmers

The farmers himself kept the seed for their next season. The KVK scientist encourages their view to keep the seed as it is a self pollinated crop only with a special care of the crop with rouging, thinning, etc. They kept more seed on the request of the surrounding farmers after observing the crop on their field as well as after calculating Benefit Cost ratio.
