Abstract:
The field experiment was conducted to study the performance of chickpea varieties (C-205, C-206 and C-208) under different date of sowing viz., 10th November, 20th November and 30th November in Rabi season at Prayagraj. There were 9 treatment combinations formed due to 3 sowing dates. The varieties showed significant difference in plant height, No of branches, (primary and secondary branches), 50% flowering, number of seed/pod, number of seeds/plant, grain yield kg/ha, straw yield kg/ha, test weight g/100 seeds, harvest index %. Sowing time C-206 sown on 10th NOV (D1V2) has produced highest grain yield 18.833 qt/ha than other two varieties. This sowing time has showed the significant difference in plant height, no of branches, 50% flowering, primary and secondary branches, number of seeds/plant, grain yield kg/ha, test weight g/100seeds, straw yield kg/ha however seed yield was reduced consequently as the delayed date of sowing. The 1st date of sowing and variety C-206 shows the highest test weight and grain yield. The study further revealed that early date of sowing gives satisfactory yield compare to other date of sowing therefore suggested that C-206 could be sown up to early November (20th Nov) under the Prayagraj agro climatic conditions for better yield.
