The results of twenty replicated demonstrations on Chickpea Cultivation practices conducted under Harshi command area of district, Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh, were analysed to differences in crop grown under improved package of practice and farmers practice, which explore the potential of farmers for enhancement crop and water productivity of chickpea crop. Sowing on ridge and furrow system with recommended row spacing improved the seed yield of chickpea by 59.38% as compared to narrow sowing on flat land of farmers practices. As compared to fertilizers by farmers practices, recommended dose of fertilizer could enhance the seed yield by 36.20%. Improvement in pest management practices led to 29.41% increase over farmers practices. Similarly, use of improved seed over farm saved seed and appropriate weed management over farmers practices, enhance the yield by 25.41% and 41.25%, respectively. The improved technology gave higher net return and B:C ratio as compared to farmers practices.
