The on farm testing and front line demonstrations were carried out in two villages of Sidhi district with inclusion of high yielding and short duration variety “Birsa Vikash Dhan-109” and applying scientific practices in their cultivation. The paddy productivity and economic returns under improved technologies were calculated and compared with the corresponding farmer's practices. Results revealed that improved technology recorded higher yield of 31.21 q/ha and 32.00 q/ha in the year 2012-13 and 2013-14, respectively than 20.13 and 20.21 q/ha by farmer's practice.
