Abstract:

Frontline demonstration on Chickpea was conducted at 25 farmers’ holdings of Dharmapuri district during Rabi season of 2017-18 to demonstrate the integrated crop management technologies for getting higher yield and income by the farmers. The integrated crop management practices including improved variety NBeG 3 were demonstrated under demonstration and it was compared with farmers practice. The results of the demonstration indicated that demonstration of integrated crop management practices along with improved variety recorded higher grain yield of 7.28 q/ha and farmers practice recorded the lower yield of 6.07 q/ha. The increase in grain yield of chickpea over farmers practice was 19.9 per cent. The extension gap of 1.21 q/ha recorded for grain yield between demonstration and farmers practice indicated that dissemination of integrated crop management practices including improved variety through demonstration is needed among the chickpea growers for achieving higher yield thereby income. Besides, demonstration of integrated crop management practices recorded higher net income of Rs.20265/ha with benefit cost ratio of 1.97 as against farmers practice wherein, the net income was Rs. 14122/ha with benefit cost ratio was 1.71 for every rupee investment.
