|FRONT LINE DEMONSTRATIONS
Front-Line Demonstration is the concept of
field demonstration evolved by the Indian Council of
Agricultural Research(ICAR) with the inception of the Technology
Mission on Crops. The main objective of Front-Line
Demonstrations is to demonstrate newly released crop production
and protection technologies and its management practices in the
farmersí field under different agro-climatic regions and farming
situations. While demonstrating the technologies in the farmersí
field, the scientist are required to study the factors
contributing higher crop production, field constrains of
production and thereby generate production data and feedback
information. Front-Line Demonstrations are conducted in a block
of two or four hectares land in order to have better impact of
the demonstrated technologies on the farmers and field level
Field day is an on field activity, in which
Technology is delivered to masses. It is a way/activity by which
many people got familiar with technology as well as the
practical impact of the technology. The results of any
successful technology/methodology is demonstrated to a large
mass of population.
|ADAPTIVE RESEARCH TRAILS
Adapive Research Trails are pre
recommendation trails in which the technology that has not been
recommended by the university is tested on the farmer's field.
Its basically for the testing purpose and is mandatory before
recommending a practice.
Radio Talk is an initiative in the field of
agriculture and communication. With the help of Radio once a
week a radio talk on a specific scientific topic is given b a
Subject Master Specialists. With help of this lots of ideas are
shared by common man and the scientists. The radio talk of a
scientist from Faridkot or Bathinda or Muktsar is delivered live
every thursday on All India Radio, Bathinda.
T.V. Talk in another initiative that for
linking agriculture with mass media. T.V. Talks of Scientists
are being delivered on DoorDarshan, Jalandhar on regular
intervals of time.
