Adoption of improved technologies brought prosperity to the blackgram growers.

box Blackgram is one among the major pulse crops cultivated in Ariyathur village of Vandavasi block of Thiruvannamalai district during Kharif and Rabi Seasons in an area of 232 ha. The productivity of the crop was low due to less awareness towards high yielding varieties, non availability of quality seeds and non adoption of integrated crop management practices in blackgram. The average yield obtained by farmers was 5.6 qtl/ha which was 37.7 % lower than the potential yield. And the income of the farmers (Rs. 36400/ha) was not satisfactory.


To address these problems faced by the farmers the KVK Thiruvannamalai had implemented CFLD on blackgram in ariyathur village. The scientists of KVK analyzed the problems of farmers through group meetings in ariyathur village prior to the implementation of cluster Front Line Demonstration programme under National Food Security Mission. The KVK had selected 50 progressive farmers for implementing the cluster front line demonstration programme. The KVK has demonstrated the new high yielding disease resistant black gram variety VBN-8 (8kg/ac). box


Soil application of bio fertilizer Rhizobium and Phosphobacteria 1 kg each, soil application of Trichoderma viride and pseudomonas fluorescence 2 kg each for control the root rot diseases and avoid plant population losses. Foliar application of TNAU pulse wonder (2kg/acres) during the peak flowering and pod formation stage for enhancing the yield and increase the quality and size of blackgram seeds. Demonstration of yellow sticky trap (5 nos/acre) for controlling the sucking pests in blackgram crop. Foliar application of Nuclear Polyhedrosis virus (250 ml/acre) for the control of pod borer damage in black gram crop. All these technologies were demonstrated in an area of 50 ha in Ariyathur village. The details of various activity implemented are detailed hereunder: To read more...
