Author(s): D Swetha and SA Hussain
Abstract: The field experiment was conducted at College farm, Acharya N.G. Ranga Agricultural University, Hyderabad during 2013-14 to study the effect of moisture regimes on yield and yield attributes of chickpea cultivars. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design (two factors) with one factor I: treatments of four moisture regimes viz., I1 (Rainfed), I2 (0.3 IW: CPE), I3 (0.6 IW: CPE), I4 (0.9 IW: CPE) and factor II : varieties JG-11 and Annegiri and replicated thrice. Among moisture regimes, Irrigation scheduled at 0.6 IW: CPE (I3) produced significantly higher yield attributes and grain and haulm yields of chickpea but it was on par with 0.9 IW: CPE (I4). The JG-11 variety has produced higher grain yield than Annegiri.
