Technical Feedback on the demonstrated technologies
Chickpea : -GJG-3
1     It is good variety over local variety for all parameters.
2     Farmer demanded seeded verities for vegetable purpose in both irrigated & non irrigated conditions.
3     Average 2-3 grains per pod is found in GJG3 variety whereas in local variety only 1-2 grains were observed.
4     In nutshell, farmers preferred GJG3 variety due to High Yielding character, bold  seeded  size and prominent to wilt resistant.
5     Grain size of this variety is also of bold than local variety, hence may fetch good market price.
