A front-line demonstration (FLD) is one of the approaches used to discriminate technology generated through research. This unique program directly involves scientists, enabling them to have first-hand information. Considering the demand for salt-tolerant rice varieties in the coastal saline soils (Khar land) of Maharashtra, an FLD was launched by the Khar Land Research Station in nearby villages from 1997 to 1999.
