Abstract:
The field experiments were conducted at Student Instructional Farm, Department of Agronomy CSAUAT Kanpur, during rabi seasons in the year 2017-18 and 2018-19. The objective of investigation was to study the effect of basal application of boron (3.0 kg ha-1) and molybdenum (2.5 kg ha-1) on plant traits (morphological, physiological, phenological, biochemical, yield and its components) of three chickpea varieties under early, timely and late sown condition. It was designed in double split plot design with three replications. The three dates of sowing i.e., Early (D₁), timely (D₂) and late sown (D3) conditions were allocated in the main plots and three chickpea varieties i.e., V₁ (KWR-108), V₂ (Awarodhi) and V3 (Radhey) in sub plot and for each plot both chemical treatments were applied as basal at sowing time.
Results revealed that growth in terms of plant height, number of primary branches, yield and its components varied significantly all the treatments during both year of cropping seasons. The results indicated application of boron (@ 3.0 kg ha-1) with three condition of sowing i.e., early (D1) timely (D2) and late (D3) of chickpea crop. Among cultivars, maximum responsive was V3 (Radhey) in most of traits and gave significantly higher higher value of plant height, number of primary branches, number of seeds plant-1and ultimately higher seed yield (g) plant-1 as compared to all other corresponding tested treatments. Among cultivars, maximum responsive was Radhey (V3) in most of traits and gave significantly higher grain yield (19.24 & 20.17 q ha-1) and followed by KWR-108 (V₁) i.e, 17.93 & 18.76 q ha-1, and minimum in Awarodhi (V2) i.e.. 15.96 & 16.76 q ha-1 with both is concerning experimental years.
