Background: Increasing agricultural productivity is a key challenge in realising higher output and farmers’ income. In India, total food grain production 291.95 million/tonnes. The major sources of growth operating within agriculture sector may be improvement in productivity, resource use efficiency or saving in cost of production, increase in cropping intensity and diversification towards high value crops.
Methods: Experiment was carried out during rabi and summer seasons of 2017-18 and 2018-19 at College Farm, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari to study the Studies on growth, yield, nutrient status of soil of chickpea as influenced by integrated nutrient management in chickpea- fodder maize cropping sequence. The treatment consisted of five treatment of integrated nutrient management to chickpea in rabi season as replicated four times in randomized block design. 
Result: Application of 100% RDF + Rhizobium + PSB (T3) recorded significantly higher almost all the growth attributes, yield attributes and yield as well as available soil nutrient remained at par with 100% RDF and 75% RDF + Rhizobium + PSB. Moreover, economics was remarkably improved due to inorganic fertilizers as well as combination of inorganic fertilizers with Rhizobium + PSB.
