Pulses, largely still being grown on marginal areas of rainfed and due to technological pause, nation is not able to meet current demand of increasing population. With almost no scope to increase the acreage current deficit of pulses can be met partially by avoiding yield losses caused by various diseases pests. Consolidated efforts by ICAR in collaboration with State Agricultural Universities and State Department of Agriculture in farmers participatory mode, has proven that plant protection technologies can help in establishing level of sustainable yield especially among farmers having small holdings. Envisaged technologies have not only contributed in enhancing the yield with lesser use of pesticides but helped in conservation of naturally occurring beneficial both at micro as well as macro niche. Apart from technological aspects present document has also focused on policy issues. © 2016, Indian Society of Genetics and Plant Breeding. All rights reserved.

A field experiment was conducted for two consecutive years to study impact of weather on performance of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) grown in vertisol with integrated organic nutrient management practices of northern dry zone of Karnataka, at Agricultural Research Station, Annigeri, UAS, Dharwad, Karnataka during rabi seasons of 2009-10 and 2010-11. The experiment was laid out in RCBD with three replications. There were 18 treatment combinations consisting of four different organic manures in combination viz., farm yard manure (FYM), vermicompost (VC), glyricidia leaf manure (GLM), enriched compost (EC), neem cake (NC) and four different liquid manures viz., panchagavya, biodigester, cow urine and vermiwash with two control treatments RDF and absolute control (water spray). In both the years 2009-10 and 2010-11, the yield attributing parameters like number of pods per plant (66.38), number of seeds per pod (1.23), test weight (20.91 g), grain yield (2400 kg/ha) and halum yield (3156 kg/ha) were recorded with the treatment combination of EC 1/3rd+VC 1/3rd+GLM 1/3rd equivalent to 100% RDN+panchagavya @ 3% spray at flower initiation and 15 days after flowering DAF compared to other treatment combination and absolute control.
