Abstract: Bengal gram (Cicer arietinum Linn.) is an important pulse crop & commercial crop of in Karnataka state. The production and productivity of Bengal gram very less in this region as compared to its potential yield. ICAR- Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Bidar during the last 8 years conducted 138 demonstrations in farmers field to showcase improved production technology of Bengal gram. It was observed that variation in the yields and was due to variation in agro-climatic parameters under rain fed condition. The highest yield in The Frontline demonstrations (FLD) plots of Bengal gram achieved by adopting improved production technology was 21.25q/ha compared to farmers’ practice (10.69 q/ha). There was an average 48.98 per cent increased yield recorded by adoption of improved production technology. The average technological gap, extension gap and technological index were calculated as 11.16 q/ha, 6.14 q/ ha and 37.19 per cent, respectively.
