Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Seed Technology Research and Production Centre, Thangedancha during rabi 2017-18 to standardize seed rate for mechanical sowing of newly released varieties of chickpea. In this investigation, growth, yield parameters and yield of chickpea were significantly influenced by the varieties, seed rates and their interaction. Among the three varieties Nandyala gram 49 recoded significantly the highest number of pods per plant, 100 grain weight and grain yield but which was statistically on par with Nandayala Senaga-1 in grain 100 grain weight and grain yield. Among the three seed rates 150% recommended seed rate recorded the highest grain yield, but which was statistically on par with 125% recommended seed rate. Nandyala gram-49 and Nandyala senaga-1 recorded the highest seed yield at 125% recommended seed rate. Dheera recorded the highest seed yield at 150% recommended seed rate. The higher net returns were recorded with Nandyala gram 49 at 125% recommended seed rate.
