   2. Farmer’s reaction on specific technologies:

        

S. No

Crop

Feed Back

1

Wheat(GW-1) (Micronutrient ZnSO4)

Response of ZnSO4 under rerstricted irrigation for durum wheat is good for higher yield.

2

Paddy(GAR-13) (Leaf colour Chart)

Saves 8 to 10% nitrogenous fertilizer and incedence of sucking pest is found low.

3 Paddy (Loose smut control) GAR 13 is found resistant against loose smut disease and good cooking quality.

4

Tomato (Alternate Furrow irrigation)

It saves watr and incidence of sucking pest can be minimized.

5

Tomato (Pheromone Trap)

Response of pheromone trap in tomato is not found suitable.

6

Gram (Pheromone Trap)

Saving and insecticidal cost.

7

Gram (Biofertilizer)

Saving fertilizer cost.

8 Gram (Bioagent) Occurance of fussarium wilt can be minimize.

9

Castor (GCH-7 )

Infestation of semi looper is minimized if castor if sown after 15 August.

10

Castor (Varietal )

This is wilt resistant variety suitable for irrigated situation..

11

Dilseed (Variety)

Prominent in this area for irrigated as well as unirrigated area.

12

Okra var. GO-5

Attractive green colour okra, fetch more price and it is resistant against yellow vein mosaic virus.

13

Chilli (Artificial defoliation)

 Increase cost of defoliation without increasing in yield.

14

Chilli (Variety) GAVC-111

Higher yield than local variety

15

Desi Cotton (ADC-1)

This variety of Desi cotton suitable in Rain fed as well as limited irrigation availability of the district.

16 Cumin (GC-4) Resistant against cumin blight.
   Feedback to Scientist:
  1.         For future research:
  •        ► Emphasis should be given to non monetary technologies like SRI technique in Paddy, land configuration technique, irrigation and fertilizer scheduling and mechanization in major crops of the district.
  •         ►Water management should be given the prime importance in future planning.
  •         ►Demonstration have positive effect on milk production, milk fat and animal health.

 

Young Scientist Award received by Dr. GayatreeJadeja, KVK Arnej

          Dr. GayatreeRajendrasinhJadeja, Scientist (Home Science), Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Anand Agricultural University, Arnej, received the Young Scientist Award by Society for Scientific Development In Agriculture and Technology (SSDAT) for her outstanding contribution in the field of Foods and Nutrition on the occasion of International conference on Global Research Initiatives for Sustainable Agriculture and Allied Sciences (GRISAAS-2017) during 02-04 December, 2017 held at MaharanaPratap University of Agriculture and Technology, Udaipur (Rajasthan).

          Dr. GayatreeJadeja had delivered nice oral presentation entitled "Effect of oat raisin breakfast biscuit on blood sugar levels of diabetic patients". Her presentation was appreciated by the chairmen of the technical session and the study was concluded by useful recommendation in the concluding session of the conference. She had also participated for poster presentation. The title of the poster was "Knowledge and Adoption of Improved technology by Cumin growers of Ahmedabad district".

          In this international conference Dr. Jigar H. Patel, Scientist (Animal Science) had also participated for oral as well as poster presentation. The title of the research paper for oral presentation was "Breeding practices adopted by professional breeders of Kankrej cattle in Banaskantha District of north Gujarat state". His presentation was appreciated by panel members and was considered as recommendation in the concluding session of the conference. The title of his paper for the poster presentation was "Feeding practices adopted by professional breeders of Kankrej cattle in Banaskantha district of Gujarat state".
