Impact of potash and zinc application on better crop production of chickpea grown in Vertisol


Author(s): GC Kakde and VD Patil

Abstract: A field experiment was planned and conducted during Rabi 2012-13 to evaluate the “Response of chickpea to graded levels of potassium and zinc in Vertisol”. The field experiment was conducted at the Departmental Research Farm of Vasantrao Naik Marathwada Agricultural University, Parbhani. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with three replications. There were eight treatments comprising of K levels and zinc viz ; T1- Absolute control, T2- Only RDF through soil (25:50:0 NPK kg ha-1) .T3 –RDF + 15 kg K2O ha-1,T4- RDF + 30 kg K2O ha-1, T5- RDF+45 kg K2O ha-1, T6- RDF+15 kg K2O ha-1+25 kg ZnSO4 ha-1, T7- RDF + 30 kg K2O ha-1 + 25 kg ZnSO4 ha-1, T8- RDF + 45 kg K2O ha-1 + 25 kg ZnSO4 ha-1.The results indicated that application of RDF+15 or 30 kg K2O ha-1+25 kg ZnSO4 ha-1 improved growth i.e. plant height (64.94cm) and number of pods per plant (64.94) and pod yield (15.40q/ha) and biomass yield (33.14q/ha) and quality parameters i.e. test weight (25.30gms) and protein content (23.53%).
