Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during winter season 2016-17 and 2017-18 to study the effect of seed rates and nipping on chick pea varieties. Role of seed rates and nipping was the most important determinant in boosting growth and yield of chickpea varieties. Among varieties, GNG – 1958 recorded significantly higher growth parameters viz., dry matter accumulation, crop growth rate, relative growth rate, leaf area index, chlorophyll content and straw yield of chickpea followed by GNG – 1581 and GNG – 2171. Significantly higher seed yield was recorded by GNG – 1581. Further, growing of chick pea by using an 80 kg ha-1 seed rate was recorded significantly highest dry matter accumulation, crop growth rate, relative growth rate, index, seed, and straw yield, followed by a seed rate of 64 kg ha-1 and 48 kg ha-1. Nipping practices show a significant effect on growth and yield of chickpea. Nipping at 45 DAS observed that higher dry matter accumulation, leaf area index, chlorophyll content, net assimilation rate, seed and straw yield as compared to control (No nipping), nipping at 30 DAS and 60 DAS.
