Effect of seed enhancement treatment and seed rate on morphological components of chickpea
Subrata Sharma, Arvind Patel, Pooja Goswami and Amita Sharma
Seed treatment with chemicals and coating with protectant enhance the seed yield and yield attributes of chickpea. The experiment consisted of six seed treatment combinations and one control and four seed rates in chickpea variety JG 14. The number of pods, nodes per plant and biological yield varied significantly as effect of various population densities which were higher at lower plant density and vice versa. Among the treatments significantly maximum number of nodes and pods per plant and biological yield were produced by Thiamethoxam @ 3g/ kg seed + Vitavax @ 2g/kg seed and the values were minimum in control. Significantly maximum and minimum harvest index was recorded in 45 kg and 75 kg seed rate per hectare respectively. Significantly maximum seed yield was produced by planting 45 kg seed rate per hectare and it was significantly lower in 75 kg /ha seed rate. Treatment with Vitavax and Thiamethoxam resulted in low insect and pathogen infection ultimately producing healthier plants ultimately leading to higher biological and seed yield.
