In Indian scenario, pulses are usually cultivated based on traditional experience acquired from our ancestors. Inflation in demand for pulses can’t be met out with existing production practices resulting deficit in availability of pulses. To cater this domestically promotion of easily adoptable low cost production strategies needs wider attention aiming to improve pulse productivity in the country. This review discusses the capacity of various improved pulse production practices in scaling up pulse productivity and on other hand provides future prospects for sustaining pulse production with a prime aim to double the farmer’s income.
