Abstract: Efficiency of biopriming agents i.e. biocontrol agents (Trichoderma harzianum @ 0.6%, Pseudomonas fluorescens @ 0.6%), and fungicides (Carbendazium @ 0.2%, Mancozeb 50% + Carbendazim 25% WS @ 0.2%) in enhancing field emergence, seedling growth and yield were investigated in chickpea of GNG-1581variety. Five treatments gave the significant results. T1 (Trichoderma harzianum) showed significant performance for field emergence (85.83), plant height (77.8), number of plants per plot (24.5), number of primary branches (3.25), number of pods per plant (45), seed weight per plant (17.61) and seed yield per plot (135.89) in organic priming followed by T4 (Carbendazim) in inorganic priming compared to untreated control. The present investigation was taken up to study the effects of chickpea with following objectives to evaluate the effect of different organic and inorganic priming treatment on seed germination behaviour and seed yield in chickpea and to identify suitable organic and inorganic priming treatment for chickpea.
