The field experiment was conducted during rabi season comprised of ten treatments viz. with Iron at 3.0,4.5and 6.0 kg/ha, Zinc 2.0,3.0 and 4.0 kg/ha and control (20:40:20) NPK kg/ha. And the experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design. Application of Iron and Zinc significantly influenced the growth parameters, yield attributing characters and yield over control. Application of 6 kg FeSO4 + 4 kg ZnSO4 recorded highest Plant height (43.33 cm), Number of nodules (29.75), Number of branches (11.25) per plant and Dry weight (18.41 g), whereas, application of 6 kg FeSO4 + 3 kg ZnSO4. recorded maximum seed yield (2457.15 kg/ha) and Benefit cost ratio (2.17).

Keywords: Chickpea, Iron, Zinc, Growth, and Yield attributes
