Abstract

Field experiments were conducted for two consecutive years to examine the effect of Rhizobium strains from different agroc!imatic zones with one reference strain obtained from PAU, Ludhiana on various growth characters of Chickpea, The strain SG387 proved good for var. GF89133 for leghaemoglobin content and nitrate reductase activity (NRA) at 55 days after sowing (DAS) with var. BG256 for number of nodules at flower: initiation stage (FIS) but it interacted maximum with var. GF89133 for nitrogen percentage at both the stages, number of noduJes and leghaemoglobin content at 55 DAS and grain yield at maturity.
