A field experiment was conducted to know the effect of priming treatments on growth and seed yield of kabuli chickpea at UAS Raichur. The experiment consists of 11 treatments with three replications in RCBD design. The results revealed that seeds primed with GA3 @ 50 ppm + seed coating of Trichoderma harzianum @ 15 g per kg of seed recorded significantly higher plant height (17.80 cm, 38.50 cm and 59.60 cm) at 30 days, 60 days and at harvest, test weight (54.67 g), less number of days to 50 per cent flowering (66 days), more number of pods per plant (33). Whereas, seeds treated with mancozeb 50% + carbendazim 25% @ 3 g per kg of seed recorded significantly higher seed yield per plant (21 g), seed yield per hectare(1869 kg/ha), biomass (2878 kg/ha), harvest index (42.12) and lowest wilt (1.67 %) and Ascochyta blight incidence (4.66 PDI).
