Abstract

A field experiment was conducted at Mahatma Gandhi Chitrakoot Gramodaya Vishwavidyalaya, Chitrakoot, Satna (M.P.) during rabi 2014-15 and 2015-16 with a view to find out the suitable kabuli variety of chickpea and their nutrient management through basal and foliar feeding. Treatment of consisted three kabuli chickpea varieties (Subhra, Ujjwal and Kripa) and four nutrient management practices (100% NPK basal + water spray, 50% NPK basal + 2% DAP spray at 30 DAS, 50% NPK basal + 2% DAP spray at 30 & 50 DAS and 75% NPK basal + 2% DAP spray at 30 DAS). Yield attributes of chickpea viz. number of pods per plant and seed weight/plant were statistically at par in all varieties while seeds/pod was higher in Ujjwal and 1000- seed weight in Kripa. The grain yield (1313 kg/ha), straw yield (2670 kg/ha) and net returns of Rs. 73518  were maximum under Subhra variety of kabuli chickpea. Among the nutrient management, the yield contributing characters such as number of pods/plant, seeds/pod, 1000- seed weight, seed yield per plant, grain yield (1183 kg/ha) and straw yield (2405 kg/ha) were found significantly superior in 100% NPK basal + water spray followed by 75% NPK basal + 2% DAP spray at 30 DAS. The net returns of Rs. 62847 and B:C ratio of 4.8 were recorded maximum under Subhara (3.72) and 50% NPK basal + 2% DAP spray at 30 DAS.

Keywords: Cultivar, DAP, basal, foliar spray, benefit, Cost ratio
