Authors(4) :-Yogesh B. Yadav, Prashant G. Shete, Rahul G. Gadage, Samir S. Shaikh

In initial years of KVK assess the problems are faced by the tribal farmers during the production of Paddy crop in western sides of KVK. In case of Paddy crop due to heavy rainfall there is a leaching losses of fertilizers added by farmers or fertilizers washout in running water. So that in consideration to this KVK assess the performance of Use of Urea + DAP Briquette in Khamgaon Village which is near by Junnar Tahsil with the help of Line dept. (ATMA). Finally KVK comes up with the recommendations of complete package of Four Fold Rice Cultivation technology which covers recycling of crop residues (Paddy), Use of green manures (Glyricidia), Plantation of seedling in proper spaces (15 x 25 cm or 20 x 25 cm) and application of Urea + DAP Briquette (170 kg/ ha.). Using urea briquette fertilizer the farmers getting more no. of tillers and obtaining more yield than that of his traditional method. i.e. Broadcasting of fertilizers. Before demonstrations yield of farmers is 28 Q/ha. and after the assessment yield increases up to 39 Q/ha. And recovery percentage is 55 to 60.
