Abstract: Pulses are the integral part of farming system of Odisha. The production and productivity of pulses has not been increased for a long period. To supplement protein requirements of the rural population there is need to increase production level through adoption of recommended technologies. Besides to improve overall farming system the contribution of pulses in terms of enriching soil fertility, conservation of moisture and controlling of weeds are to be kept in mind. The present transfer of pulse technology system is quite weak which needs strengthening. The rate of adoption of pulse technologies stands with a gap of more than 50% along with problems of non availability of quality seeds and other inputs in time. To look at the future of pulse production in the state the steps like cluster approach, establishing of seed production centres,, variety wise seed plan, strengthening of Extension support, making input available in time at affordable cost, research linkage, year wise Production Program and Development of marketing chain for pulse are suggested based on the findings of the study.
Keywords: Adoption, Cluster Approach, Pulse Technology, Quality Seeds.
