Assessment of yield gap in chick pea through improved pulse production and protection technology
The Assessment and comparison of yield gap of the demonstrations over farmers practice under IPPPT component. The demonstration was conducted in several village of Jabalpur during year 2008-2011. The average chickpea yield was obtained 16.16 q/ha, which was higher than the farmers practices (11.58 q/ha) and the data observed that max. yield potential of chickpea 20.3 q/ha through Improved Pulse Production Protection Technology (IPPPT). The IPPPT programme was effective in changing attitude, skill and knowledge of recent technology for high yielding varieties, balanced dose of the fertilizer and biological disease management of chick pea including their adoption.
