Abstract

A field experiment was conducted at College of Agriculture, Dharwad during rabi season of 1997-98 and 1998-99 to study dray matter production, growth and yield in kabuli chickpea [ICCV-2] as influenced by dates of sowing and irrigation levels. Significantly higher dry matter production [10.81 g/plant] and seed yield [16.18 g/plant] recorded at higher IW/CPE ratio of 0.8 over 0.4 IW/CPE ratio and control, but was at par with 0.6 IW/CPE ratio. While sowing at IIFN of October recorded significantly higher seed yield [1802 kg/ha] compared to I FN of October and II FN of November which was mainly due to more pods/plant [55.6] and 100-seed weight [26.65 g]. The non significant effect due to phosphorus levels was observed on growth, yield components, seed and bhusa yield except branches/plant. The effect of irrigation levels and interaction effects were non significant on harvest index, seed yield canopy width and pods/plant.
