Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted at Agronomy Research Farm of Narendra Deva University of Agriculture & Technology, Faizabad (U.P.) during rabi season of two consecutive years to assess the effect of phosphorus, sulphur and biofertilizers on nutrient uptake and quality of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) The experiment was layout in SPD having twenty-four treatment combinations consisted of three phosphorus levels (0, 30, 60 kg P2 O5 ha-1), two sulphur levels (0, 20 kg ha-1) and four seed inoculation with biofertilizers (un-inoculated, PSB, Rhizobium and PSB + Rhizobium). The application of phosphorus at 60 kg ha-1 , sulphur at 20 kg ha-1 and seed inoculation with PSB + Rhizobium significantly increased the nutrient uptake and quality of chickpea over the control /un-inoculated. So, inoculation of biofertilizers with optimum level of fertilizers could able to improve the performance of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.).
