Abstract:
To achieve better crop production and yields in rainfed agriculture it is necessary to adopt nipping technology. A field demonstration was carried out at Hadagali village, Vijayapur district on Vertisols during Kharif 2019-20 and 2020-21 to study the effect of nipping on chickpea under rainfed conditions of Karnataka. Adopting nipping using solar operated tool and hand nipping increased the grain yield by 18.45, 7.72 per cent for 2019-20 and 25.0, 7.14 percent for 2020-21 respectively over farmer’s practice. Significant reduction in plant height was seen in nipped plots than farmer’s practice. The increase in grain yield indicates that nipping using solar operated tool could be effective treatment for chickpea in Vertisols. Higher gross and net returns with greater BC ratio was observed with nipping using solar operated tool followed by hand nipping technology.
