Krishi Vigyana Kendra conducted a frontline demonstration on Integrated crop management in Rose during the year 2017-18 in 10 farmers' holdings of Chikkaballapur district. The crop was grown with integrated crop management practices compared with the farmer's practice. The integrated crop management practices were the application of bioagents (Trichoderma & Pseudomonas) enriched FYM to soil, fertigation, foliar spray of micronutrient mixture, timely pruning techniques, use of yellow sticky cards and use of need based plant protection chemicals to manage thrips and powdery mildew incidence. The results of the demonstration indicated that the demonstration of integrated crop management practices recorded a higher rose yield (127.0 q/ha) compared to farmers' practice (114.0 q/ha). The increase in yield under demonstration over farmer's practice was 11.40 %. The thrips infestation (6.94 %) and powdery mildew incidence (11.45 %) were lower in demonstration and higher in farmer's practice (13.60 % and 20.02 %). The front line demonstration plots fetched a higher net income of Rs.1019250/ha as compared to Rs. 828000/ha with farmer's practice. The higher benefit cost ratio  (5.06) was realized  in demonstration and lower benefit cost  ratio  (3.65)  was realized  in farmer's practice.
