The present investigation was conducted with the objective to know the effect of nutrient management modules on nutrient uptake, quality and economics of high yielding varieties of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.). The study comprised six treatments of nutrient management modules (a) F1- FYM@10 t ha-1, (b) F2- Vermicompost @ 5 t ha-1, (c) F3- Poultry manure @ 5t ha-1, (d) F4- Chemical check 20+60+20+20 kg NPKS ha-1 as basal application, (e) F5- Vitormone @125ml ha-1 as foliar application, (f) F6- Control and four varieties (a) V1- Pragati (K-3256), (b) V2- Pusa- 256, (c) V3- Avrodhi, (d) V4- Pant G-186. The study revealed that the nutrient management modules F2- Vermicompost @ 5 t ha-1) found suitable for maximum biometric parameters, yield and quality of chickpea with variety V3- Avrodhi. However, the higher B:C ratio was higher with F5- Vitormone @125ml ha-1 as foliar application, which was statistically at par with F2- Vermicompost @ 5 t ha-1  and significantly higher than the other fertilizer modules. The maximum B: C ratio found with V3- Avrodhi which was significantly superior over V1- Pragati (K-3256), and V4- Pant G -186. It remained at par with V2- Pusa- 256. Thus it may be concluded that V3- Avrodhi fertilized with F5- Vitormone @125ml ha-1 as foliar application may be found highest economic value of chickpea in Bundelkhand region of Uttar Pradesh.
