Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) is commonly known as gram which is one of the important pulse crops of the State. Front line demonstrations were conducted at 100 farmer's field in 40 hectares of 11 villages. To demonstrate production potential and economic benefits of improved technologies comprised viz., improve varieties (JAKI 9218 and JG 14) with seed rate of 75 kg/ha, line sowing with spacing of 30 cm (R-R) and 10 cm (P-P), seed treatment with bavistin 2 g/kg seed, balance dose of fertilizer, weed management and plant protection measures. The demonstrations were carried out in the Uttar-Bastar Kanker district of Chhattisgarh during rabi season of 2015-16 to 2018-19. The improved technologies gave higher yields and recorded mean yield of 10.16 q/ha which was 46 per cent higher than the farmers practice i.e. 6.95 q/ha.
