Abstract: Black gram (Vigna mungo L.) is most important pulse crop, grown throughout the country. The productivity of Black gram is low because of non-adoption of available technologies by the farmers. In this view Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Bidar conducted 118 demonstrations in farmers field of Bidar district during the last 7 years i.e., from 2010-11 to 2016-17 through integrated crop management (ICM). It revealed that increase in crop yield was found due to variation in agro-climatic situations under rain fed condition. The result showed that, an average highest yield of FLDs plots of Black gram by adopting ICM technology was 10.58 q/ha compared to farmers practice (7.47 q/ha). Adoption of improved production technology increased the yield 47.89 per cent over farmer practices. The average technological gap, extension gap and technological index were noticed 14.42 q/ha, 2.97 q/ ha and 57.70 per cent respectively. The average net profit of Rs. 32866.54 per ha was recorded under FLDs plot over Rs 20641.50 per ha under farmer practice. The higher average grain yield was recorded in demonstration plots over the years compared to local check due to increased knowledge and adoption of full package of practices.
