Abstract

A field experiment was conducted during rabi, 2004 on sandy loam soils to study the response
of chickpea to irrigation and nutrient management practices. Results revealed that growth and
yield of chickpea was highest with four irrigations scheduled at sowing, branching, flowering and
pod filling stages. Among the nutrient management practices, 100 per cent recommended dose of
N and P + Rhizobium + PSB has resulted in higher growth, yield attributes and yield of
chickpea. Interaction between irrigation and nutrient management practices was significant
with respect to yield.
