Abstract:

A cluster demonstration of improved package of practice of chickpea along with improved variety was conducted in the Narsinghpur district of Madhya Pradesh during rabi 2015-16. Chickpea varieties JG 63, JG 130 and JG 315 (control) were demonstrated. Highest yield was obtained in chickpea variety JG 63 (17.57q /ha) followed by JG 130 (15.85 q/ha) and JG 315 (13.6 q/ha). The technology gap in case of JG 63 was the lowest (493 kg/ha) compared to that of JG 130 (665 kg/ha) and JG 315 (890 kg/ha). The extension gap revealed that in Narsinghpur district for the increased production of chickpea, there is a lot of scope for the adoption of improved varieties along with improved package of practice. This was well corroborated by the values of Technology Gap index of the best variety JG 63 (in the present case) and the farmer’s choice. The Benefit Cost ratio was the highest in case of JG 63 (1:3.47) followed by JG 130 (1:3.24) and JG 315 (1:2.75). Overall the cluster demonstrations revealed that highest seed yield and benefits were obtained in the demonstrations on JG 63 with complete package of practices.
