Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Gwalior has carried out 52 front line demonstrations (FLD) on 20.8 ha area during 2012-13 to 2015-16 on the farmers’ fields with wilt resistant varieties of chickpea viz. JG-16 and JG-6, respectively with improved agronomical practices under FLD pulse scheme. The results revealed that wilt resistant chickpea varieties with improved cultivation practices gave 14.35 q/ha average yield which was 19.6% higher over local / farmers' practices. Economic analysis showed that front line demonstrations recorded higher net return of 40174/ha which was 10869  higher over local / farmers practices on average basis. The average B : C ratio 3.29 was obtained under front line demonstrations which was 2.77 under local / farmers practices.
