Location
District profile :
The district Rajkot mainly falls in north Saurashtra agro-climatic zone. The total geographical area of North Saurashtra Agro Climatic Zone is 35.2 Lacs ha. Out of total area, 73.40 per cent area falls under arid and semi-arid region. The soils of this zone are shallow to moderately deep. The soils of Rajkot district is low in their availability of nitrogen while medium in phosphorus and high in available potash except the available phosphorus and potash is in medium category in adopted villages. Monsoon commences usually by the end of June and withdraws by middle of September. Average annual rainfall of districts is 648 mm while 497.5 mm during 2014-15.

7  Feedback, matrix scoring of various technology parameters done through farmer’s participation / other scoring techniques : Chemical treatment has given higher production as compare to organic treatment.
8.   Final recommendation for micro level situation :Yield can be increased and white grub infestation can be reduced with use of bio product with castor cake.
9.  Constraints identified and feedback for research : - White grub infestation was observed more in organic are as compare to chemical treatment.
10.  Process of farmers participation and their reaction : This was first trial for  experimentation and it will be improved and repeated nest.

Farm women reaction
-Kitchen gardening gives continuous supply of fresh vegetables at lower cost which gives daily nutritious diet
-In kitchen gardening, farm women are not applying any agrochemicals so it is organic and healthy
-Before demonstration, farm women were growing only three to four vegetable crops in their backyard but after demonstration they said that they grow different vegetable crops through kitchen gardening in scientific way
-They gave extra vegetables to their neighbors
-Farm women said that now we will generate income by selling of extra organic vegetables because now they are aware about precious organic vegetables

Background information / Introduction
             On the basis of agro climatic conditions, soil types, and cropping pattern; Gujarat has been divided into eight agro climatic zones. Rajkot district falls under North Saurashtra Agro climatic Zone. The total geographical area of North Saurashtra Agro Climatic Zone is 35.2 Lack ha. Out of total area, 73.40 per cent area falls under arid and semi-arid region. The soils of this zone are shallow to moderately deep. The soils of Rajkot district is medium in their availability of nitrogen while low in phosphorus and high in available potash except the available phosphorus and potash is in medium category in adopted villages. Monsoon commences usually by the middle of June and withdraws by middle of September. Average annual rainfall of districts is 1214.6 mm. Monsoon in this area commences in the end of June and retreats by the middle of September. Most of the precipitation is received from South – West monsoon, concentrating in the month of July and August. The maximum rainfall and number of rainy days are observed in July. The winter season sets by the end of October. This district is situated near seashore hence; there are no drastic fluctuations in the temperature. The average maximum and minimum temperatures are 42.0° C and 16.9 °C respectively. Overall climate of this station is humid and convenient for coastal crops
The main crops of the region are groundnut, cotton, wheat, cumin, onion, garlic, castor, green gram, black gram, pearl millet, etc.
Seasonal vegetables are also grown in limited area. Lift irrigation through tube well & dug well are the main sources of irrigation.

8.Details of collaborative Research Project on “Implementation of IPM technology in groundnut crop with farmers’ participatory mode of approach on wide-area basis” (NCIPM)
Objectives:
1)      Development of location specific Integrated Pest Management Technology for groundnut crop.
2)      Validation of Integrated Pest Management Technology in groundnut crop on the farmers’ fields with farmers’ participatory mode of approach in wide-area basis.
3)      Popularization of the IPM technology.
            During the month of March-April 2019, with PI of this project Dr. A. M. Bharadiya, Associate Research Scientist and Dr. B. B. Kabariya (Co-PI), Programme Coordinator collected literature related to integrated pest management of groundnut crop, created information base for integrated pest management for groundnut crop, developed location specific IPM module for groundnut crop as well as conduct a general meeting to finalized action plan to implement project in selected village and visited the selected village viz; Bhadla from Jasadan taluka of Rajkot district on 15th May 2019 and carried out base line survey of village and farmer’s meeting at village as well as selected farmers for implementation of project on groundnut crop.
            In farmer’s meeting, we discussed and interacted with farmer’s community among the research project, especially IPMmodule on groundnut crop. We motivate the farmers to work on different technology of concerned module as well as we gave informations of concerned module in detail. As per the module, we aware farmers to use high yielding improved variety and to adopt recommended plant protection measures viz;. In Groundnut crop, for white grub management, seed treatment of chlorpyriphos @ 25 ml/kg seed before sowing, apply Beauveria bassiana orMetarhizium anisopliae(JAU Isolate) 1.15 WP @ 5 kg/ha (Min. 2 x 106 cfu/g) along with castor cake (300 kg/ha) before sowingand drenching in plant row after 30 days of germination, in case of sever infestation drenching of chlorpyriphos @ 25 ml/10 litre of water and install light trap. For stem rot management, seed treatment of carboxin 37.5 + thirum 37.5 - 75 WP @ 3.0 g/kg of seed before sowing, application of Trichoderma @ 2.5 kg/ha with castor cake or FYM @ 100 kg/ha and soil drenching of Trichoderma @ 2.5 kg/ha at 30 days after sowing.
