Abstract:

The present investigations were carried out in NICRA village (Melakunda B) of Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK), Kalaburagi to study the influence of drought tolerance by seed priming with CaCl2 (2%) in chickpea growth, yield and quality parameters during 2017-18 under rainfed condition. The result reveal that, seed treatment with CaCl2 (2%) recorded higher plant height (43.7 cm), leaf dry matter (2.15 g/plant), stem dry matter (7.14 g/plant), total dry matter (36.2 g/plant), total number of pods (48.7 pods/plant), seed yield (13.7 q/ha) and higher seed quality parameters like seed germination (94.8 %), root length (10.7 cm), seedling vigour (1564.2) and field emergence (91.7 %) compared to control under drought condition.
