Abstract:

The present study was carried out during Rabi season in five villages of Mandla district during 2011-12 to 2015-16 in 25 ha by active participation of 60 numbers of farmers with the objective to demonstrate the improved technology of chickpea production potential. These focused on increased the chickpea productivity and replacement of old variety with promising high yielding improved variety, adoption of improved production technology and get feedback from farmers on the performance of chickpea variety. The improved production technology consisting use of modern variety, seed treatment with Trichoderma viridae @ 10 g/kg, Rhizobium culture @ 5g/kg and PSB @ 10 g/kg of seed, balanced fertilizer application on the basis of soil test value and pest management. Study revealed that over the years, it was observed that the improved chickpea variety JG-63 recorded the higher yield (1231 kg/ha) as compared to the farmer’s practices variety (789 kg/ha). The increase in the research practices yield over farmer’s practices was 56.60%. Technology gap and the technology index values were 568 kg/ha and 31.60, respectively. The research practices gave higher gross return (Rs. 41,932 /ha), net return (Rs. 27,296 /ha) with higher B: C ratio (1:3.43) as compared to framer’s practices. By conduction of front line demonstrations on farmer’s field there was significant increase in knowledge level of the farmer’s and majority of farmer’s showed high level of satisfaction about research practices.
