Tiryak Kumar Samant
The study was carried out through participatory on farm testing during rabi season of 2014-15 at Bauligarh village in Angul district under mid central table land zone of Odisha on farmers field with an objective to evaluate the performances of Toria variety Sushree as compared to the farmers practice (Rai shoriso). The HYV Sushree recorded higher plant height (153.78 cm), branches plant-1 (4.68), dry matter plant-1 (32.16g), siliquae plant-1 (173.19), seeds siliqua-1 (12.13) and 1000 seed weight (4.29 g) than Rai shoriso. The same also produced seed yield 12.64 q ha-1 which is 44.96 % higher yield than local check with stover yield (42.36 q ha-1) and harvest index (22.98%). The variety grown with recommended technologies gave additional net return Rs.11006.61 ha-1 with benefit-cost ratio 1.80 as compared to farmers practice and thus the existing variety (Rai shoriso) can be replaced by Sushree since it fits to the existing farming situation for higher productivity and income.
