Abstract:

An experiment was carried out during rabi 2015-16 to evaluate growth and yield of chickpea under different sowing dates and weed control measure. The experiment was laid out in split-plot design with three replications, assigning twenty treatments consisting of four date of sowing (15 October, 30 October, 15 November and 30 November) as main plot treatments and five weed control measure (Weedy check, Weed free, Pendimethalin @ 0.75 kg/ha as pre emergence, Imazethapyr @ 20 g/ha at 20 DAS as post emergence and Quizalofop@ 37.5 g/ha at 20 DAS as post emergence) as sub-plots. Sowing of crop on 15 October remained statistically at par with sowing on 30 October recorded significantly higher growth parameters viz. plant height, dry matter accumulation, relative growth rate and yield attributing characters viz. number of branches/plant, number of pods/plant, number of seeds/pod, test weight, seed yield, straw yield, biological yield, harvest index, net return and B:C ratio as compared to 15 November and 30 November. In case of weed control measures, weed free recorded higher growth attributing characters viz. plant height, dry matter accumulation, relative growth rate and yield attributing characters viz. number of branches/plant, number of pods/plant, number of seeds/pod, seed yield, straw yield, biological yield, net return and B:C ratio followed by Pendimethalin @ 0.75 kg/ha as PE and Quizalofop @ 37.5 g/ha as PoE.
