Abstract: Chickpea (Cicer arietinum Linn.) is most important pulse crop in Madhya Pradesh. Front line demonstration were conducted during the post rainy season at 48 farmers fields, to demonstrate production potential and economic benefit of improved technologies consisting suitable varieties (cvs ‘JG -322’, ‘JG-11’), integrated nutrient management (20:60:20:30 NPKS kg/ha + Rhizobium + PSB @ 20 g/kg seed), integrated pest management (deep ploughing + seed treatment with Tricoderma viride @ 5 g/kg seed + Fermone trap @ 10/ha + Bird perchers @ 50/ha + quanal- phos @ 1.2 l with 600 l of water) at Tikamgarh district of Bundelkhand Agro-climate zone during Rabi season 2004-05 to 2008-09. The improved technologies recorded mean yield of 19.65 q/ha which was 71.88 per cent higher than that obtained with farmers practices of 11.44 q/ha. Improved technologies gave higher mean net return of 24611/ha with a benefit cost ratio 2.99 as compared to local practice 11820/ha, benefit cost ratio 2.58).
