On Farm Testing of Pheromone trap @ 5/ha + Coriander row (7/8:1) + HaNPV @ 250 LE/ha against pod borer (Helicoverpa armigera L.) management was assessed on farmers field in Nagaur district during 2020-21. Trial was conducted on 10 farmer’s field to know the impact of said technology on chickpea pod borer management. In the demonstrated technologies the chickpea seed production 19.83 q/ha. The percent seed yield increase over the farmer’s practices was 34.11%. The net return in demonstration technology was Rs. 67036/ha and the same was Rs. 44525/ha. The incremental benefit cost ratio was 3.26 in demonstration technology as compared to farmer’s/ local check 2.60 respectively.
