The research study on recommended production practices of pigeon pea was conducted during the year 2017-2018 in Shorapur taluka of Yadgir district of Karnataka. Pulse crops play an important role in Indian agriculture. Besides being rich in protein, pulses are the main sources of essential amino acids for predominantly vegetarian population of India. They contain 22-24 percent of protein, which is almost twice the protein in wheat and thrice as that of rice. In India, owing to its diverse agroclimatic conditions, pulses are grown throughout the year and plays an important role in crop rotation, mixed and inter-cropping, maintaining soil fertility through nitrogen fixation, release of soil-bound phosphorus and thus contribute significantly to sustainability of the farming systems. In the production process, pulses require less water than cereals.
