Abstract

An experiment was conducted on chickpea during 2007-08. Results indicated that chickpea sown without seed bed preparation with Pantnagar zero till drill produced the highest seed yield of 20.3 qha-1 followed by zero tillage after removal of stubble (18.7 qha-1), zero tillage with happy seeder (18.7 qha-1) and reduced tillage (18.0 qha-1) as compared to conventional tillage with paddy straw incorporation (16.4 qha-1). This method also showed higher straw yield, biological yield, harvest index, NPK uptake and protein content. The bed planted crop (16.5 qha-1) did not show any increase in seed yield over the conventional tillage. Among the varieties, PBG 5 gave the higher seed yield of 20.9 qha-1 as compared to GPF 2 (17.0 qha-1), BG 1053 (17.8 qha-1) and L 550 (16.8 qha-1) and also showed higher straw yield, biological yield, harvest index NPK uptake and protein content.
