Abstract:
A field demonstration was conducted in drought prone NICRA village of Chitrakoot (UP) in order to find out the impact of farm pond on yield of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) and fish production & income/ha of three farmers i.e., T-1 Renu, T-2 Avaneesh and compared with T-3 Suman singh, a farmer practice (no irrigation + farm pond), the demo was conducted during Year 2020 -21 and 2021 -22. The pond constructed in 0.1 ha area which was within one ha cultivated area of chick pea and pond. Pods per plant, grains per plant, 100 grains weight, grain yield was affected at different stages of irrigation through sprinkler system. T-1 was a best grower in terms of grains per pod, 100 grain weight, grain yield when sprinkler irrigation given before flowering stage. The system (Chick pea+ Fish) income was also 32.72% higher and T-2 gives 24.14% higher as compared to T-3 (No irrigation + fish pond) income. The production of T-1 in terms of grain yield was found 32.04% higher yield when irrigation given before flowering stage and T-2 gives 19.05% higher yield when irrigation given at grain filling stage as compared to T-3 Suman Singh (No irrigation) yield of grains per pod, 100 grains weight, grain yield was found lowest. Therefore, yield and yield components of chickpea may be reduced under water stress condition, depending on the extent of stress. The system net income was found higher when available pond used for fish cultivation.
