Abstract:
Phosphorous, sulphur and biofertilizers are able to increase the root development, growth, yields and quality of crop plants. In this contests to assess the effect of phosphorus, sulphur and biofertilizers on growth attributes and yield of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) a field experiment was conducted at the Agronomy Research Farm of Narendra Deva University of Agriculture & Technology, Faizabad (U.P.) during rabi season of two consecutive years of 2014-15 and 2015-16. The experiment was layout in SPD having twenty-four treatment combinations consisted of three phosphorus levels (0, 30, 60 kg P2O5 ha-1), two sulphur levels (0, 20 kg ha-1) and four seed inoculation with biofertilizers (un-inoculated, PSB, Rhizobium and PSB + Rhizobium). The application of phosphorus at 60 kg ha-1, sulphur at 20 kg ha-1 and seed inoculation with PSB + Rhizobium significantly increased the growth, dry weight, number of nodules plant-1 and yields (grain & straw yield) of chickpea over the control /un-inoculated. Use of optimum fertilizer level along biofertilizers could able to enhance the performance of crop in terms of growth and yield.
