"Front Line Demonstration (FLD) is the field demonstration conducted under the close supervision of the scientists because the technologies are demonstrated for the first time by the scientist themselves before being fed into the main extension system of the state department of Agriculture in that particular area. In this method newly released crop production and protection technologies and its management practices are adopted in a block of two to four hectares in the farmers field. Only critical inputs and training for this demonstration are provided by Krishi Vigyan Kendra. In FLD both farmers and extension functionaries are target audience. From the FLD, it is possible to generate some data related to factors contributing to higher yield and also constraints of production under various farming situations. Front Line Demonstration is conducted in a particular area after thorough discussion and consultation with the farmers of that locality. Depending upon the requirement of that area highly efficient new proven technology with higher potentialities is selected for this programme. Generally a field day is observed in the demonstration field when the crop is at maturity stage and interaction between the scientists, farmers and extension functionaries takes place in the field. The crop is harvested in the presence of the interested group of farmers so that they can visualize-the importance of new technology easily and effectively."
