Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during rabi season 2007-08 and 2008-09 at Agricultural farm of Mahatma Gandhi Chitrakoot Gramodaya Vishwavidyalaya, Chitrakoot, Satna (M.P.) to study the root growth, nodulation and nutrient content of chickpea. Results revealed that root growth viz. root length, root dry weight/plant; nodulation viz. no. of nodules/plant, nodules dry weight/plant and seed yield were recorded significantly superior under basal application of sulphur 40 kg/ha and zinc 5 kg/ha during two years. Spray of zinc 0.5% and sulphur 2% produced significant greater grain yield over control during two respective years. The protein content of seed and protein yield was observed significantly more under basal application of sulphur 40 kg/ha and zinc 5 kg/ha during two years. However, foliar application of zinc 0.5% noted numerically higher protein content of seed while, protein yield was observed significantly higher under foliar spray of zinc 0.5% over S spray 2% and control. Sulphur and zinc content in grain were significantly improved with application of sulphur and recorded maximum under 40 kg S/ha however, basal application of zinc 5 kg/ha recorded significantly higher Zn content in grain. Basal application of 40 kg S/ha observed significantly superior sulphur and zinc content in soil however, S and Zn content in soil was significantly improved due to application of zinc 5 kg/ha. Foliar spray of S 2% observed significantly higher S in grain and soil, while Zn spray 0.5% recorded more Zn content in grain and soil.
