Abstract:
In rice-based cropping systems, chickpea is a viable crop for agricultural diversification and enhancing production. As a result, a field experiment was carried out in 2012-13 and 2013-14 to assess the performance of chickpea cultivars under rice fallow conditions following lowland rice harvest. In rice fallow conditions, ten chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) cultivars were assessed. Pant G-186 (26.75) produced significantly more pods per plant than the other cultivars, followed by JG-16 (25.75) and DCP 92-3 (21.73). Shubra had the highest 100 seeds weight (34.73 g), followed by JG-14 (22.37g). With 1284 kg/ha, Shubra outperformed the other cultivars, followed by Rajas (1284 kg/ha) and JG-16 (1176 kg/ha). Except for JG-14, which matured in around 122 days, the majority of the cultivars matured in about 129-137 days. Thus, the study demonstrated the potential for chickpea growing in lowland rice fallow with acceptable technology in Imphal valley of Manipur.
