Abstract: In this experiment all the minerals were found higher at 45 days after sowing in leaves of both varieties of chickpea. The leaves of C-235 collected at 45 days after sowing had the highest amounts of calcium (2802.67 mg/100 g), magnesium (137 mg/100g) and phosphorus (387.67 mg/100 g), calcium content of HC-1 variety at 30 days after sowing was almost similar to that of C-235 varieties leaves collected at 60 days. Copper content of leaves of HC-1 collected at 30, 45 and 60 days were almost similar to those in leaves of C-235 variety. The highest calcium content was kabuli, HK-1 (2675.67 mg/100 g) followed by HK-2 (2624.33 mg/100 g) at 45 days. Magnesium content was higher in the leaves of HK-1 (139.67 mg/100 g) and least was in HK-2 (128.00 mg/100 g) at 30 days, potassium content was higher in the leaves of HK-1 (965.33 mg/100 g) at 45 days, than in the leaves of HK-2 at 30, 45 and 60 days after sowing. Phosphorus content was maximum in the leaves of HK-1 and HK-2 (386.67 and 377.00 mg/ 100 g) at 45 days after than at 30 and 60 days. Iron content was higher in the leaves of kabuli variety HK-1 at 45 days (360.00 mg / 100 g) than in the leaves of HK-2 at 30 and 60 days after sowing. Total zinc content was found highest in the leaves of kabuli chickpea variety HK-1 (6.57 mg /100 g) and HK-2 (6.37 mg /100 g) at 45 days after sowing. Manganese content was found in the leaves of HK-2 (1.42 mg/100 g) and HK-1 (1.39 mg/100 g) at 45 days after sowing. Copper content was almost same in the leaves of HK-1 and HK-2 at 30, 45 and 60 days and ranged from 1.20 to 1.36 mg /100 g. Highest boron content (1.20 mg /100 g) was found in the leaves of HK-1 and HK-2 at 60 days followed by HK-1 at 45 days (1.07 mg/100 g). Nickel content was found higher in the leaves of HK-1 and HK-2 at 45 and 60 days.
