Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted at the Agriculture Research Farm, Bhagwant University, Ajmer, Rajasthan, India, during rabi seasons of 2020-21 and 2021-22. There were Ten treatments imposed in chickpea viz., T1- Control, T2- Farmers practice (50 kg DAP ha-1), T3- RDF, T4- FYM @ 10 tha-1, T5 Vermicompost @5 tha-1, T6- RDF + FYM @ 5 tha-1, T7- RDF + Vermicompost @ 5 tha-1, T8- 75% RDF + FYM@ 2.5 tha-1 + Vermicompost @ 1.0 tha-1, T9- 50% RDF + FYM @ 5 tha-1 + Vermicompost @ 2.5 tha-1, T10- 25% RDF + FYM @ 10 tha-1 + Vermicompost @ 5.0 tha-1. These treatments were evaluated replicated Three times in randomized block design. Application of 75% RDF + FYM@ 2.5 tha-1 + Vermicompost @ 1.0 tha-1 (T8) recorded significantly higher almost all the growth attributes viz., plant height, number of branches per plant, dry matter accumulation per plant, volume of nodules per plant, yield attributes and yield viz., number of pods per plant, seed index, seed yield per plant, seed yield, stover yield as well as available nutrient status in soil over the control and farmer’s practice. The least vales were recorded under the control treatment where no fertilizer was used.
