Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted to study the responses of chickpea types on growth, yield and economics under different thermal environment and irrigation levels during rabi seasons of 2017-18 and 2018-19 at Research Farm, Department of Physics and Agrometeorology Jawaharlal Neharu Krishi Vishwa Vidyalaya, Jabalpur (Madhya Pradesh). The experiment was laid out in split split-plot design with three replications consisted of three sowing dates viz., November 15th, December 1st and December 15th, three chickpea types viz., JG 14 (Deshi), JGG 1 (Gulabi) and JGK 1 (Kabuli) with three irrigation levels (No irrigation, Irrigation at 50% branching and two irrigation each at 50% branching and pod development) as main plot, sub-plot treatments and sub sub-plot, respectively. Results revealed that Plant height, number of branches, number of filled pods, 100 seed weight, seed yield, Stover yield and harvest index decreased with successive delay in sowing. December 1st sowing produced significantly higher plant height, number of branches, number of filled pods, 100 seed weight, Seed yield (2090.08 kg ha-1), Stover yield (2832.85 Kg ha-1), harvest index (45.55%), net income (Rs 61247.80 ha-1) and B:C ratio (2.50) as compared to November 15th and December 15th. Among cultivars, seed yield (1959 Kg ha-1) and harvest index (43.54%), Net monitory return (Rs 54948.22 ha-1) and B:C ratio (2.35) were found maximum in JG 14 (Deshi) chickpea type. Irrigation each at 50% branching and pod development stages is produced maximum seed yield (2034.81 kg ha-1), Stover yield (2733.84 Kg ha-1),harvest index (42.60%),net income (Rs 57965.76 ha-1) and B:C ratio (2.39) over no irrigation and one irrigation at 50% branching.
