Abstract:
Rice residue burning is a serious environmental issue in Chhattisgarh. The findings of the present study envisage that for feeding the ever growing population and to earn higher returns, farmers should adopt the recommended management practices for rice-chickpea cropping system in Chhattisgarh. This research work was carried out at the instructional farm of IGKV, Raipur to evaluation of different chickpea sowing technologies under paddy residue conditions were conducted in a combine harvested paddy field. Field of paddy variety (R-1) was harvested with combine. The stubble load was 7.16 t/ha at moisture content of 26.9 per cent. Chickpea variety (JG-130) was sown directly with happy seeder without any land preparation and sowing with conventional seed cum fertilizer drill after tillage practice (Conventional method, MB Plough + Cultivator + Rotavator) by several passes. In happy seeder, all the paddy straw was remained in the field itself and spreaded uniformly without requirement of any tillage practice. While in conventional methods the field was required for land preperation before sowing of seed. The maximum total yield of chickpea grain was obtained in happy seeder (1137.8 kg/ha) then conventional seed cum fertilizer drill, 1067.29 kg/ha.
