Abstract
This paper gives an overview of the current status of research in Nagaur district the gap between the actual and potential yield and the level of inputs used in production of moth bean. The potential yield with the recommended package of practices was 10.00 qtl./ha of main product and 20.00 qtl./ha of by product. The yield on farmers’ field was merely 4.47 qtl./ha of main product and 8.58 qtl./ha of by product. Preparatory tillage especially in pulses are highly desirable for higher yield. Treatment of seed with Rhizobium culture and vitavex at the rate of 2.5 g./kg seed is a must for pulse crops. Weeds are quite commonly found in moth bean field and it is estimated that they reduce yield by 30 to 50 percent depending upon their intensity. It has been found that farmers were neither using mechanical method nor any chemical method to control the weeds in the moth bean fields. According to package of practices, the recommendations are 600 g./ha Pendimethalline for the weed control, one irrigation to be applied when these is deficiency of rainfall in field and 25.00 tonnes/ha F.Y.M. should be used in the moth bean field. The other recommendations are use of 10.00 kg./ha Chlorophayriphos for plant protection and 15.00 Kg./ha Urea and 20.00 Kg./ha SSP in moth bean for higher yield. The constraints attainment the higher yield is agro-climatic, technological and economic constraints.
