Abstract

A field experiment was conducted during rabi 2004 to study the effect of tillage and priming practices on nutrient uptake and yield of chickpea. The results indicate that the nutrient uptake was not influenced by tillage practices except haulm N uptake which was significantly higher with mould board plough compared to conventional tillage. Priming of seeds for 4-6 proved beneficial in increasing the nutrient uptake and yield of chickpea.
