Three hundred front line demonstrations on chickpea were conducted on different aspects during
2000-01 to 2009-10. The yield gap between conventional practices and improved package of
practices was much higher ranging from 21 kg/ha to 349 kg/ha. There is urgent need to improve seed
replacement rate, best PoP and make stronger the extension services for educating the cultivators in
the implementation of improved technology. Under varietal demonstration, the technology gap was
much higher i.e. 349 kg/ha followed by management of fertilizers in chickpea (191 kg/ha).
