Abstract: The study was conducted in Raichur and Kalaburgi districts of North Eastern Karnataka region in 2014-15. These two districts were selected purposively with the criteria of highest area under pigeonpea cultivation and also implemented FLD programmes by respective KVKs. From each district 60 FLD participants were selected thus making total sample of 120 respondents. The design employed for the present study was experimental design. The data was collected from respondents before and after FLD implementation. The major findings of study revealed that, half (50.00 %) of pigeonpea growers were belonged to medium knowledge followed by low (37.50 %) and high (12.50 %) knowledge regarding pigeonpea cultivation practices before participation in FLD programme. Further, it is quite interest to note that 56.67 per cent of the growers were belonged to high knowledge followed by medium (29.16 %) and low (14.16 %) knowledge categories after participation in FLD programme. Over half (51.67 %) of growers were belonged to low adoption followed by medium (40.00 %). A meagre per cent (8.33 %) of them belonged to high adoption before participation in FLD programme. It is interesting to note that 59.16 per cent of the growers belonged to medium adoption category followed by high (25.00 %) and low (15.83 %) adoption categories after participation in FLD programme. Non-availability of labours, severity of pest, uneven distribution of rainfall, high cost of plant protection chemicals, fluctuation in market prices, lack technical guidance are the major constraints in pigeonpea production. The suggestions as expressed by pigeonpea growers before participation in FLD programme were the large majority (90.08 %) of farmers expressed technical guidance followed need for government intervention by opening procurement centres (87.50 %). Further farmers suggested supply of seeds, fertilizers and PPC on subsidy (84.16 %), subsidies to purchase machineries to overcome labour scarcity (80.00 %), good remunerative market prices (65.00 %) and cooperate transportation to markets (51.66 %).
