Abstract

The data were collected by structured schedule from 36 pigeon pea grower of agroclimatic Zone III b where it is the major pulse crop during kharif season. On the basis of results of investigation it could be said that existing knowledge and adoption level of pigeon pea growers was not up to the mark and there exists glaring knowledge gap of 67.84 and adoption gap of 67.50 MPS. It was also found that farmers faced relatively more constraints in adoption of practices related to seed treatment, post harvest technology and ecological problems (76 to 57 MPS). Contrary to this less problems were experienced by them in following recommendations with respect to chemical control of weeds, method, sowing time & seed rate and Rhizobium culture.
