Abstract

The front line demonstration of chickpea were conducted during the post rainy season at 60 farmer’s field to determine the production potential and economic benefit of improved technologies consisting suitable variety (JG-130,JG-16), integrated nutrient management (20:60:20 kg N:P:K /ha + Rhizobium + P.S.B.@ 5 g per kg of seed) integrated pest management- Deep ploughing + seed treatment with Trichoderma viridi + Pheromone trap 10/ha + bird percher @ 50/ha + Quinolphos @1.5 lt/ha) at Raisen district of Madhya Pradesh (India) during rabi season of 2006-07 to 2010-11. The improved technologies recorded mean yield of 14.12 q/ha, which was 30 percent higher than that obtained with farmers practices of 10.79 q/ha. The additional cost of Rs 2405 to 2900 gave additional net return, it was ranged Rs 2495 to Rs 8900 per hectare with increase benefit: cost ratio ranged from 1:1.03 to 1:3.06. The extension gap ranging between 2.45 to 4.45 q/ha. Data on technology index reduced from 35.25 percent (2006-07) to 20% (2010-11), exhibited the feasibility of technology demonstration in this region.
