Abstract:
A field experiment entitled “Response of seed rate and nipping on different chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) varieties in arid irrigated western plain zone” was laid out in split plot design with three replication assign 36 treatments combination of three varities (GNG-1581, GNG- 1958 & GNG-2171), three seed rate (48, 64 and 80 kg-1) as main plot and four levels of nipping practice (no nipping, at 30 DAS, at 45 DAS and at 60 DAS) during rabi season 2016-17 & 2017-18. Role of seed rates and nipping was the most important determinant in boosting growth and yield of chickpea varieties. Among varieties, GNG – 1958 recorded significantly higher growth parameters viz., plant height and straw yield of chickpea followed by GNG – 1581 and GNG – 2171. Significantly higher seed yield was recorded by GNG – 1581. The results showed that variety GNG-1581 had significantly number and weight of effective nodules per plant plant-1 seed yield. Further, growing of chick pea by using 80 kg ha-1 seed rate was produced higher straw yield followed by seed rate of 64 kg ha-1 and 48 kg ha-1. Nipping practices showed a significant effect on growth and yield of chickpea. Nipping at 45 DAS observed higher seed and straw yield as compared to control (No nipping), nipping at 30 DAS and 60 DAS.
