Abstract

The study was undertaken in Jhalawar district of Rajasthan. Data were solicited from randomly selected 60 beneficiary
and 60 non-beneficiary vegetable growers of Krishi Vigyan Kenddra (KVK) Jhalawar district, Rajasthan, India. The
important interventions extended by KVK Jhalawar among farmers were vegetable varieties, time of sowing, plant
protection measures, and fertilizer application. Findings of the study revealed that technological interventions
extended by KVK have significantly empowered the vegetable growers technologically and economically. Higher
extent of adoption of timely sowing, balanced fertilizer use and plant protection measures by the beneficiary
respondents resulted in less cost of cultivation (Rs. 8,350/-) and higher net income (Rs.1,04,200/-) from vegetable
cultivation than the non-beneficiary respondents.
