Front Line Demonstration

Front Line Demonstration is a concept of field demonstration evolved by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research during the inception of Technology Mission on Oil seeds Crops during mid-eighties. The field demonstrations conducted under the close supervision of scientists of the National Agriculture Research System is called front-line demonstrations because the technologies are demonstrated for the first time by the scientist themselves before being fed into the main extension system of the State Department of Agriculture.
