respectively. During 2018 and 2019, average yield of 10.25 q/ha and 10.30 q/ha was obtained in FLD plots as compared to 9.30 q/ha and 9.02 q/ha respectively in local check plots. Cost of cultivation of the summer moong
at demonstrated field was Rs. 17918.57/ha whereas it was 16687.85/ha in case of farmers’ fields during 2017 and net returns of the demonstrated field and local check were Rs. 38720.43/ha and Rs. 32322.64/ha respectively. The
B:C ratio of the demonstrated and local check were 3.16 and 2.94 respectively. In 2018 BC ratio of 2.96 and 2.71 was obtained in FLDs and check plots and during 2019 BC ratio of 2.94 and 2.44 was obtained in FLDs and check plots respectively.
