Introduction: · The overall objective of the project is “Harnessing Improved Pulse Production and Protection Technology (IPPPT) in the Rainfed Rice Fallow Lands (RRFL) of Chhattisgarh (CG) and Madhya Pradesh (MP)”. In this project, chickpea was identified as a candidate pulse. It was further expanded in the collaboration with JNKVV and IGKV in farmer’s field in the RRFL of CG and MP using IPPPT, as per the agreed work plan for 2010-2011. · The RRFL of CG and MP, suitable for chickpea cultivation after rice, have black soils. These soils are broadly classified as vertic-inceptisols (shallow sandy loam) and deep vertisols (top layer consisting of 33% clay and at least 60 cm depth). Therefore the selection of sites for the project and farmers are restricted to vertisols. · Rainfed vertic-inceptisols types of shallow soils are not suitable for double cropping with chickpea or any other crop without backup of substantial irrigation.
