Abstract:
The present investigation “Effect of bio fortification of zinc and iron on yield attributes and yields of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) Through agronomic intervention” was carried out during Rabi season in 2016-17 and 2017-18 at Instructional Cum Research Farm of IGKV, Raipur (Chhattisgarh). The soil of experimental field was clayey (Vertisols) in texture, locally known as “Kanhar” which was low, medium and high in available N, P2O5 and K2O, respectively. The experiment was laid out in Split Plot Design with four replications. The experiment consists of two genotypes and six different nutrient levels treatment combinations. Chickpea genotypes Indira chana-1was found significantly higher in seed yield, stover yield and harvest index over the variety Vaibhav during both the years and on mean basis. Yield attributing characters viz. pods/ plant, seed/ plant, test weight and seed yields was found maximum in treatment RDF(20:50:20) + 0.5% ZnSO4 and 0.1% FeSO4 through foliar application in pre flowering and pod development stage followed by treatment RDF(20:50:20)+ Soil application of ZnSO4 @ 25 kg/ha at basal compared to other treatment and lowest in RDF(20:50:20) (Standard control) Where as 100 seed weight of chickpea showing non significant results during both the years and on mean basis.
