Chickpea, Production technology.
Chickpea is a one of the most important pulses crop grown during rabi season in Madhya Pradesh. Adaptive research trials on Chickpea were conducted during rabi season of 2013-14 at fields of farmers practices, in order to demonstrate production potential and economic benefit B:C ratio of improved production technologies consisting suitable varieties (cv. JG 16), seed rate (30 kg/acre), seed treatment with vitavex @ 20 g/kg seed, recommended dose of fertilizer RDF (20:60:20:30 NPKS kg/ha + Rhizobium + PSB @ 20 g/kg of seed), Indoxacarb (15.5 SC) @ 500 ml/ha for control of Helicoverpa armigera, pre-emergence application of pendimethalin @ 1.0 kg ai/ ha for weed control and one sprinkler irrigation was applied. The improved production technologies recorded the mean seed yield of 1886 kg/ha which was 55.23% higher than that of farmers practices of 1215 kg/ha. Improved technologies had given higher economic B:C ratio (2.20) over farmers practices (1.60).
