Abstract:

The study was conducted in the Bhiwani district of Haryana state to study the major factors, which dissuade the farmers to include chickpea in their cropping system. In this study, two blocks Tosham and Siwani were selected randomly from Bhiwani district and from each block; two villages were selected, randomly. Thus, total four villages, namely (Khanak, Kirawar from Tosham block and Gaindawas and Barwa from Siwani block) were selected, randomly. Further, thirty farmers from each village were selected and thus, total number of 120 farmers was interviewed for the study. The study reported various dissuading factors for not including chickpea in cropping system and it was found that 100% of the farmers considered “low yield potential of chickpea” was most accountable dissuading factor followed by “lack of promising varieties particularly for irrigated and drought prone areas”, “economic losses under storage conditions due to stored grain pests”, “high incidence of wilt and root rot” and “poor extent of knowledge about seed treatment” with 99.33%, 98.66%, 98.33% and 98%, respectively.
