The present study was carried out the evaluating the performance of improved varieties with scientific package and practices on production, productivities and profitability of black gram. Front line demonstrations were conducted during 2009-10 to 2013-14 (five consecutive years) with evaluation of the performance of different varieties of black gram (PU-35, IPU 94-1 and T-9) in five different villages namely Lorha, Choti pali, Chandia, Dogargawa and Tali of the district. The results showed that the average mean yield of black gram under front line demonstrations was 8.07 q/ha as compared to 5.06 q/ha recorded in farmer’s practices, average yield increase of 60% and additional return of Rs 7774/ha. It was observed that the benefit cost ratio (B: C ratio) of recommended practice was 2.28 as compared to 1.72 in farmer’s practice as per the mean of five consecutive years i.e. 2009-10 to 2013-14. The average extension gap 3.01 q/ha and average technology gap 3.93 q/ha was recorded. Therefore, the results clearly indicates that the use of improved varieties and package and practices with scientific intervention under front line demonstration programme contribute to increase the productivity and profitability of pulses in the district.
