Abstract:

The study on growth and yield of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) as influenced by seed rate and seed priming was conducted during Rabi 2017-18. The experiment consisted of nine treatment combinations of three seed rates viz. 60 kg, 80 kg and 100 kg ha-1 in main plots and three seed priming treatments viz. control, water and NaCl in sub plots were tested in split plot design with three replications. Plant growth parameters like emergence count and plant height (cm) was found superior with seed rate of 100 kg ha-1 whereas number of branches, fresh weight, dry weight and some yield attributes viz. number of pods plant-1 were recorded significantly superior with seed rate of 60 kg ha-1. Seed rate of 80 kg ha-1 produced 28 and 21 per cent higher grain yield as compared to 60 kg and 100 kg ha-1 of seed rate. Water primed seeds produced 20 and 9 per cent higher grain yield as compared to control and NaCl. Among different seed rates and seed priming treatments, 80 kg ha-1 of seed rate and water primed seeds resulted 37 and 19 per cent higher net returns and 31 and 19 per cent higher benefit cost ratio as compared to other treatments.
