Front line demonstrations were conducted by Krishi Vigyan Kendra Sadalpur, Hisar to find out the gap analysis between demonstration field and farmer practices under irrigated semi arid condition. It was observed that yield of chickpea was more in demonstration field when compared with farmer practices during both the years i.e. 2017-18 and 2018-19. The yield of chickpea was recorded 17.9 and 20.5 q/ha during 2017-18 and 2018-19 respectively where as in farmer practices it was observed 16.50 q/ha in 2017-18 and 16.80 q/ha in 2018-19. The average technology gap, extension gap and technology index was 8.10, 1.40 and 31.15 during 2017-18 and 9.20, 3.70 and 21.15 during 2018-19 respectively. The cost benefit ratio 1.5 and 1.8 were recorded during 2017-18 and 2018-19 respectively. The gap between demonstration field and farmer practices may be due to the farmers were not followed the latest technology as mentioned in package of practices from seed treatment to final maturity of crop.
