Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during rabi2013-14 at agronomy farm, college of agriculture, Indore, on medium black soil (Vertisols). The experiment was conducted in split-plot design replicated 3 times, keeping 3 moisture stress situation viz. S0 – Water withheld after germination, S6L – Water withheld from 6 leaf stage and SFL – Water withheld from flowering in main-plots and 9 chickpea cultivars viz. V1 – Ujjain 21, V2 – JAKI 9218, V3 – IG 593, V4 – JG 6, V5 – JG 16, V6 – JG 130, V7 – JG 412, V8 – JG 11 and V9 – KAK 2 in sub-plots. Crop was sown on 15-11-2013 and harvested on 29-03-2014. The rainfall of 46.8 mm in 3 days was received during cropping period. Plant height of chickpea was recorded highest with S0 – Water withheld after germination while it was recorded with V3 – IG 593 under chickpea varieties. Pod weight per plant was recorded significantly higher with S6L under moisture stress situations and with V9 – KAK 2 among different chickpea varieties. Seed yield of was obtained highest with moisture stress situation treatments SFL followed by S6L. SFL gave 68.47 % higher production over S0 and S6L gave 19.51 % higher production over S0, while SFL gave 40.97 % more yield as compared to the seed yield achieved with S6L. Among the chickpea varieties, V5 – JG 16 produced highest seed yield followed by V6 – JG 130 followed by V8 – JG 11. Under various treatment combinations, the seed yield of chickpea was recorded highest under SFLX V5. B:C ratio was noted highest with SFL due to moisture stress situations while in case of chickpea varieties, maximum values were estimated under V5 – JG 16. It may be concluded from that the combination of moisture stress situation SFL – Water withheld from flowering and the chickpea variety V5 – JG 16 was found most suitable in terms of productivity and profitability.
