Abstract

  Participatory pre extension demonstration of faba bean were conducted in Bonke and Chencha Woreda, Gamo gofa zone in three Kebele and 24 farmers field on 10*10= 100m2 area of demonstration plots. All necessary inputs were delivered to farmers from Arbaminch Agricultural research center. Farmers were trained and well capacitated by relevant researchers. After the provision of training, farmers sown on their farm and regular follow up were undertaken by research centers. For the sake of to promote the technology to large the large farmers in large scale, field days were organized and farmer was select the variety according to their preference criteria and rank Dosha variety as better over the local variety. The yield performance showed that Dosha gave better yield (25.5 quintal per hectare) than local variety (21.2 quintal per hectare). Finally, it was recommended that in order to enhance diffusion and adoption of the variety, it is better to scale up Dosha variety.
