Front line demonstrations on chick pea were organized in Pankhedi and Bhadoni villages of Shajapur district  by Krishi Vigyan Kendra in Rabi seasons of 2011 and 12. The package of improved practices demonstrated included improved variety JG-130, Proper seed rate, Integrated nutrient management (20kg Nitrogen + 60 kg Phosphorus + 20 Kg Potash + rhizobium @ 5g/kg seed + PSB @ 5g/kg of seed + Ammonium Molebdate @ 1g/kg of seed), integrated pest management (Bird purchure @ 100-125 /ha + seed treatment with Trichoderma virdae @ 5g/kg seed + prophonophosh @ 1 lit/ha), Proper irrigation (Ist irrigation at the time of branching and IInd irrigation during the pod formation) and weed management. The result revealed that percentage increase in the yield in demonstrations over farmer practices was 34.4 and 37.2 in year 2011 and 2012 respectively. The benefit: cost ratios of chick pea cultivation under improved practices were 2.31 and 2.26 as compared to 2.02 and 1.94 under farmer practices for the two consecutive years.
