Abstract:
Chickpea is well known legume crop in the dry lands and has high demand due to its high protein content. But the current yield and its attributes declines due to various infection from the insects and pest throughout its life stages. Thus, the application of insecticides and pesticides at proper stage is important practices to optimize the reduced yields. An experiment was conducted to study efficacy of certain modern insecticides and fertilizer against the pest at KVK, Sonbhadra, A. Narendra Dev University of Agriculture and Technology, Kumarganj in Rabi Season. It was arranged with 4 treatments and 4 replications. Yield attributes for all treatments are significant except neck thickness and neck diameter. The results invokes that Third treated plot (plethora) shows maximum yield return with 18.11 q ha-1 as compared to others 13.5 q ha-1, 15.6 q ha-1 and 16.85 q ha-1. The increase in the yield is due to more incidences of insecticides over the pods which cause less infection. However, the highest gross return (Rs. 67550/ha) as well as net monitory return (Rs. 105038/ha) was found from the second treatment i.e., sentry application as compared to other treatments, which was mainly due to higher yield under this treatment. Hence, the highest Benefit: Cost ratio (B:C) derived from this treated plot is 1:2.82. Therefore, economic wise sentry while performance wise plethora gives the best results.
