Technical Feedback on the demonstrated technologies
S. No
Feed Back
1. Chickpea :-G Gram-3
•      It is good variety over local variety for all parameters.
•      Farmer demanded seeded verities for vegetable purpose in both irrigated & non irrigated conditions.
•      Farmers demanded adequate seed quantity availability at the time of sowing.
2. Cumin :- GC-4
•      High yielder and wilt resistance but delayed germination observed.
•      Farmer demanded blight resistant variety.
3. Wheat : GW: 366
•      Yield better than Lok-1 and GW-496, baking quality observed good.
4.  Sesame 
•      Guj. Til-3 gave higher yield as compare to local varieties.
5.  Green gram   
•      Guj. Green Gram-4 is superior over K-851, It is also suitable for late monsoon condition.
6.  Cotton
 
•      Farmer demanded sucking pest tolerant variety.
•      Location specific varieties should be developed
•      Bt. cotton requires more water and nutrient, do not withstand in moisture and nutrient stress conditions. So drought tolerant variety should supply.
•      Letter stage of crop infected by pink boll worm so required tolerant Bt cotton varieties.
