Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at N.D. University of Agriculture and Technology, Kumarganj, Faizabad during the winter seasons of 2008-09 and 2009-10. Application of 60 kg P2O5 ha-1 was significantly increased almost all the growth, yield attributes and seed yield of chickpea. Seed yield of chickpea was significantly increased 85.46 per cent with 60 kg P2O5 ha-1 over control. Similar trend in straw yield was also recorded. The plant height, number of branch plant-1, number of pods plant-1 and test weight was positive and significantly affected by seed inoculation with PSB + Rhizobium. The combined seed inoculation (PSB + Rhizobium) significantly increased the seed yield of chickpea by 20.1 per cent over control. The optimum dose of phosphorus was 61.93 and 61.37 kg ha-1 during 2008-09 and 2009-10, respectively. The highest cost of cultivation (Rs. 22613 ha-1), gross returns (Rs. 68425 ha-1), net return (Rs. 45812 ha-1) with 75 kg P2O5 ha-1 and benefit: cost ratio (Rs. 2.05:1) with 60 kg P2O5ha-1 and optimum dose of P2O5 ha-1 was 61.93 and 61.37 respectively
