Abstract:
Field experiments were conducted to evaluate Phosphorus, Boron and Rhizobium on growth attributes and yield of chickpea during rabi season 2018-19 and 2019-20 at students instructional farm, Chandra Shekhar Azad University of Agriculture & Technology, Kanpur three levels of each phosphorus (0, 60, 90) kg ha-1 and boron (0, 1, 2) kg ha-1 was tested with and without rhizobium inoculation. The experiment consists of eighteen treatments with three replications. Results of the experiment indicated that plant height, number of nodules plant-1 and dry weight of nodules plant-1 increased with lapse of time and also due to application of phosphorus, boron and rhizobium inoculation during both the years of experimentation. Maximum plant height 23.03 cm, number of nodules plant-1 16.21 and dry weight of nodules plant-1 93.47 mg were recorded with T18 (P90+B2+Rh) during second year. Grain, stover and biological yield significantly increased by the use of phosphorus, boron and inoculation of rhizobium during both the years. Significant increase was noted with T14 (60 kg P2O5+1kg B ha-1 + rhizobium). Grain, yield increased from 12.40 to 19.90 Q ha-1 (60.48%) and stover 17.34 - 25.94 Q ha-1 (48.48%) during second year. Biological yield also increased from 29.74 Q ha-1 to 44.93 Q ha-1(51.08%).
