The frontline demonstration on Integrated crop management in Rose was conducted by Krishi Vigyana Kendra, during 2017-18 in 10 farmers' holdings of Chikkaballapur district. The crop was grown with integrated crop management practices and compared with the farmers practice. The integrated crop management practices were application of bioagents (Trichoderma & Pseudomonas) enriched FYM to the 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 farmers practice was 11.40 %. The thrips infestation (6.94 %) and powdery mildew incidence (11.45 %) was lower in demonstration and higher in farmers practice (13.60 % and 20.02 %). The front line demonstration plots fetched higher net income of Rs.1019250/ha as compared to Rs. 828000/ha with farmers practice. The  higher  benefit  cost  ratio (5.06) was  realized  in  demonstration, and  lower benefit  cost  ratio  (3.65)  was  realized  in farmers  practice. 

Keywords: Rose, Demonstration, Rose yield, Net income, Benefit cost ratio.
