Abstract

The present study highlights the Integrated crop management in brinjalfor their yield and economics. A field experiments was in tiruvallur district of ICAR-Krishi Vigyan Kendra during 2017-2018.  The implementation of scientific technology through optimal resource utilization is the primary driver for horticulture's development. Due to a lack of acceptance of cutting-edge technologies, low production is one of the main obstacles facing conventional brinjal cultivation. Frontline demonstration's primary goals were to persuade farmers to adopt brinjal production technologies in order to facilitate the wider spread of newly released crop production, protection, and management practices in their fields and farming situations, as well as to demonstrate these technologies in action. To increase the production, productivity and quality of agricultural produce, front line demonstrations are being conducted at various farmer’s field. There was significantly increased in brinjal yield (36.7 per cent), net return and B:C ratio after conduct of frontline demonstrations as compared to farmers practice. The adoption and implementation of integrated crop management practices through FLD programme, showed positive impact on brinjal growth, yield and economics.

Demonstration plot recorded higher technology gap (22.0 t/ha), extension gap (6.0 t/ha) and technology index (36.6 per cent), compare to local variety and also showed high percentage yield increase over farmer’s practice and recorded 20 per cent increase yield means technology was accepted by the farmers.As a result, 50 farmers initiated the small scale farming of brinjal in the district with the technical guidance provided from ICAR-KVK, Tirur, Tiruvallur. Therefore, a study on effect of integrated crop management practices on yield and economics of Brinjal in Tiruvallur district of tamilnadu was conducted during 2017-18.
