Field experiments were conducted during 1999-2000 and 2000-2001 to assess the effect of improved Vs traditional practices on the seed yield of improved chickpea cvs NIFA-88 and local.(Desi). Yield components i.e pods per plant, 1000 seed weight and seed yield obtained with improved cv. NIFA-88 and practices was significantly higher than local variety with traditional practices booth the years respectively. Although plant height and branches per plant did not differ significantly but generally increased occurred with improved practices. The yield increase over traditional practices appeared 7 to 27% both the years which may have been results of the joint impact of the improved practices thus, the use of improved chickpea cv. "NIFA-88" with proper managed practices i.e one deep-plough before moon soon rain and then disc harrowing after rain before sowing of crop, using a fertilizer @ (20-50 NP kg ha-1) broadcast and incorporated with rotavator and seed rate of 75 kg ha-1 treated with vitavax-200 @ 2 gm kg-1 proved to be the recommended technology for obtaining maximum seed yield under the Rodh-kohi condition.
