Abstract:

The study entitled The Effect of different level of NPK and Zinc on soil health, growth and yield of Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.). Cv-Pusa-362 was carried out at the research farm of Soil science and agriculture chemistry, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Science, Prayagraj during the season of Rabi 2019-20. The soil of the experimental area was sandy loam in texture. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with three levels of N P & K (0%, 50% and 100%) and three levels of Zinc (0%, 50% and 100%). The experimental results revealed that significantly maximum growth parameters like plant height(42.9cm), number of branches (19.6) and yield attributes like number of pods (63.1), number of seeds pods-1 (1.6), test weight (28.38g), total grain yield (25.13q ha-1) were noticed under T9 (@100 % NPK + 100 % Zn) as compared to rest of the treatments and lowest under T1 (Control). And the result shows that pH, EC (dSm-1), Bulk density (Mg m-3), Particle density(Mg m-3), Pore space (%), Organic carbon (%), available Nitrogen (306.24kg ha-1), phosphorus (28.96kg ha-1), potassium (210.23kg ha-1) and Zinc (0.89kg ha-1) on the soil showed significant effect with T9 (@100 % NPK + 100 % Zn). Maximum gross return, net return (Rs.124849) and B:C ratio (1:4.24) were also recorded with the treatment T9 (@100 % NPK + 100 % Zn).
