Abstract:
An investigation was carried out at Soil Conservation and Water Management Farm, C.S.A. University of Agriculture and Technology Kanpur, during rabi season of 2017-18 and 2018-19 with the objective to find out the bio-intensive cropping systems on yield attributes i.e. number of pods plant-1, number of seeds pod-1 1000-seed weight, of chickpea crop. The treatments comprised of T0 - Mustard alone (45 x10cm): Flat bed - Conventional method (Control-1), T1 - Chickpea alone (30 x 10 cm): Flat bed - Conventional method (Control-2), T2- Mustard + Chickpea (1:1): Additive series (45x10cm) Mustard+1Row of (Chickpea), T3 - Sowing of Chickpea on ridges-one row on ridges, T4 - Sowing of Chickpea + Mustard by skipping 1 row of Chickpea, T5 - Sowing of Chickpea on narrow bed (45 cm): two rows of Chickpea, T6 - Sowing of Mustard on narrow bed + Chickpea (one side mustard other side chickpea) and T7 - Broad bed furrow -105 cm (BBF): 3 rows of Chickpea on BB and 1 row of Mustard in furrow in Randomized plot design with 3 replications. Results obtained in regards to growth parameters and yield attributes obtained that the T3 - Sowing of Chickpea on ridges-one row on ridges produced significantly higher yield attributes in both the years basis recorded number of pods plant-1 (54.20 and 56.73), number of seeds pod-1 (1.50 and 1.78), Pod wt./plant (g) (20.79 and 22.24), seed wt./plant (g) (18.16 and 20.10), 1000-seed weight (179.87and 196.54 g) in case of growth parameters days of flowering (67.87 and 68.74), pod formation (88.79 and 89.75)and at maturity stage (136.14 and 137.13) being first year and second year was found superior in all respect as compared to other treatments combinations was found superior in all respect as compared to other treatments combinations during both years of experimentation.
