Abstract:

An assessment of raised bed sowing of chickpea was done during rabi season in the vertisols of Narsinghpur district of Madhya Pradesh in Central India. The study was conducted for two consecutive years viz. 2014-15 and 2015-16. Chickpea variety JG-63 was considered for the study. Average crop yield under the flat bed planting was observed to be 11.95 q/ha whereas the same under the raised bed planting was 15.15 q/ha. Thus an increase of nearly 28 percent was obtained in crop yield when planted on raised beds. The average net return in the case of raised bed planting was Rs. 29010/- per ha whereas that under raised bed planting was observed to be Rs. 42248/- per ha. Thus an increase of Rs. 13238/- per ha was observed under the raised bed planting. With regard to B: C ratio the one under raised bed planting (2.67) was found to be higher than that under the flat bed planting (2.205). Overall the raised bed planting performed better than the flat bed planting in the case of chickpea in vertisol region of central India.
