Abstract:

The study conducted in twelve villages Viz., Askihal, Yaklaspur, Amaravathi, Kuppigudda, Melakunda, Srinivas saradagi, Kollur, Maradagi, Narayanapura, Betabalakunda, Siddeshwara and Bhalki of Hyderabad–Karnataka region of Karnataka, during the year 2014- 15, to know the technological gap among the small and marginal farmers in adoption of improved cultivation practices chickpea crop. The study revealed that, majority of the small farmers (83.33 %) and marginal farmers (43.33 %) of chickpea crop belonged to medium technological gap category. Meager per cent of the technological gap was observed among the small and marginal farmers of chickpea in the practices like soil type, land preparation, sowing season, varieties, seed rate, spacing and hand weeding and huge technological gap was observed in application of FYM, intercultivation, use of herbicides, growth regulator and nipping. With regard to integrated pest management, cent per cent of both small and marginal farmers did not follow the practices like mechanical beating of plants, erection of bird perches and pheromone traps.
