"Testing of any improved technology along with the farmers practice in the farmers field with active participation of both the scientists and farmers is known as OFT. In this method two to three improved varieties or two to three improved technologies are tested in the same field so as to compare the results of these treatments. As per the suggestions of the farmers as well as local soil and climatic conditions the improved technology may slightly be modified by the scientists of K.V.K. to get maximum return."
