Herbicidal weed management in chickpea (Cicer arietinum) through front line demonstration in Farmers field

RK Dwivedi, MK Ahirwar and R Jhariya
The domestic requirement of pulse had been manifold of a modern living standard which has been fulfilled through the imports that leads to imbalance the Indian economy. To fulfil the domestic demand and to boost the production and productivity of chickpea, the major constraints are still competition from Weeds. Keeping this view in mind, one front line demonstration on herbicidal weed management in chickpea was conducted at farmer’s field by Krishi Vigyan Kendra Damoh. Demonstrations were conducted in twenty four Farmers field at Jortala and Bandakpur village on chickpea c.v. JG12 during winter season of 2019-20 and 2020-21. Prevailing farmers practices were treated as control for comparison with recommended practice i.e. application of pendimethalin 38.7 cs @700ml ai/ha at 0-3 day after sowing (DAS) The result of front line demonstration shows a greater impact on farming community due to significant increase in crop yield greater than farmers practices. The economics and benefit cost ratio of both farmers practice (FP) and recommended practice (RP) were worked out. The Weed intensity and weed biomass were found lower under RP (7/m2 and 10.5g/m2) then FP (65/m2 and 95.7 g/m2) an average of Rs 36328/ha was recorded under RP while it was Rs 26065 under FP. Benefit cost ratio was 2.54 under RP, while it was 2.34 under FP. By introducing the proven technology i.e. Pre-emergence use of pendimethalin 38.7 cs @ 700 ml ai/ha in chickpea yield potential and net income from chickpea can be enhanced to great extent with increase in the income level of the farming community of the district.
