Abstract: The present study was conducted in Raichur, Kalaburagi and Bidar districts of Karnataka state during 2013-14. Two talukas from each district and two villages from each taluka were selected based on highest area under cultivation of pigeonpea and chickpea with highest number of small and marginal farmers. From each selected village 10 pigeonpea (5 small and 5 marginal farmers) and 10 chickpea growers (5 small and 5 marginal farmers) were selected by using simple random sampling technique. Thus the sample comprised of 240. The data were collected using structured interview schedule and analysed using appropriate statistical tools. With respect to overall knowledge management, 53.33 per cent of pigeonpea small and 43.34 per cent marginal farmers belonged to medium knowledge management category. In case of overall knowledge management of chickpea just over half of (51.67) per cent of small farmers and 40.00 per cent of marginal farmers belonged to medium knowledge management category. Majority of the respondents used interpersonal sources like friends, neighbours, family members and relatives for acquisition of knowledge of improved cultivation practices of pigeonpea. Majority (55.00 %) of the chickpea small farmers and forty per cent chickpea marginal farmers found in medium adoption category. Major chunk of small and marginal farmers of pigeonpea crop not adopted seed treatment. Further, majority of small and marginal farmers of both pigeonpea and chickpea crops belonged to medium technological gap category. Favourable attitude towards improved cultivation practices of pulse crops was expressed by 40.83 per cent of small farmers and 37.50 per cent of marginal farmers. No remunerative prices, fluctuation in the price, lack of sufficient rainfall, high cost of inputs and financial constraints were the major constraints experienced by majority of small and marginal farmers of pigeonpea and chickpea crop.
