Abstract

Effect of phosphorus (P) and iron (Fe) on growth and yield attributes of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) was studied during rabi season of 2010-2011 with four levels of P (control, 20, 40 and 60 kg P2O5 ha-1) and Fe (control, 2.5, 5 and 7.5 kg Fe ha-1). Increasing P and Fe levels, increased the plant height, branch plant-1, pods plant-1, seed pod-1 and test weight; in 40 kg P2O5 ha-1 with 5 kg Fe ha-1  plot, significantly improved  yield attributes compared to rest of the treatments. The effect of application of iron 5 and 7.5 kg Fe ha-1 was found at par on growth and, yield and yield attributes. Application of P and Fe fertilizer improved soil fertility status and crop yield, it can be a sustainable tool to enhanced chickpea production.
