Abstract: The present investigation entitled was carried out on effect of sowing time, spacing and nipping on growth and yield of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) under irrigated condition during rabi season of 2016-17 at Instructional cum Research Farm, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, Raipur, Chhattisgarh. The soil of the experiment field was clay (Vertisols) in texture with neutral soil reaction, low in available nitrogen, medium in phosphorus and high in potassium content. The experimental was laid out in split-split design with three replications. The treatments comprised of four sowing time viz., first week of November (D1), third week of November (D2), first week of December (D3) and third week of December (D4) in main plot and three spacing viz., 30 cm (S1), 40 cm (S2) and 50 cm (S3) in sub plot and three nipping viz., no nipping (N1), one at nipping 30 DAS (N2) and one nipping at 40 DAS (N3) in sub-sub plot. The test variety was JG-130. The results of the experiment indicated that the growth parameter viz., plant height, number of branches plant-1 (34.96), dry matter accumulation plant-1 (40.18 g), number of nodules plant-1 (45.93), dry weight of nodules plant-1 (0.72 g) and leaf area index (4.86) were maximum at 3rd week of November sowing time.
