Greengram is one of the important pulse crop in India, which plays a major role in supplementing the income of small and marginal farmers. One of the major constraints of traditional green gram farming is low productivity of local varieties. In this point of view Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Kalaburagi conducted Front line demonstration at 150 farmer’s field to demonstrate production potential and economic benefit of improved technologies at adopted farmer’s field during 2010-11 to 2016-17 of seven years studyinrainfed condition. The results shows improved production technologies of green gram, (BGS-9) recorded increased mean yield of seven years 10.49 and 15.78% during study period over local check. The technology gap which shows the gap in the demonstration yield over potential yield were 14.51 q/ha over a seven years, The highest extension gap of 1.70 was recorded in during 2013-14 this high extension gap requires urgent attention by the extension and development agencies. The technology index is 58.0 percent during 2010-11 and 2016-17which shows the good performance. There is a need to adopt multipronged strategy that involves enhancing sesame production through area expansion and productivity improvements through better adoption of improved technology. The improved technologies resulted higher mean net income of Rs.32061 /ha with a benefit cost ratio of 3.17 as compared to local.
