Abstract

The Bharatpur is the major mustard producing district of Rajasthan. The productivity of the mustard crop in the district has been low and unstable over a period of time due to a number of production problems. In this study, the efforts have been done to identify the major mustard production problems through Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) techniques in eight villages of the Bharatpur district. The eight major problems, viz., Sclerotinia rot, Orobanche parasite, Alternaria blight disease, non-availability of quality seeds, painted bug pest, aphid pest, white rust disease and termite pest were identified and their management require the on-farm participatory technology generation for the emerging serious production problems and effective extension strategies for dissemination of the proven technology to enhance the productivity of mustard in the district.
