Abstract: The objective of the study was to standardize the biofertilizer doses wiith the selection of Rhizobium strain for exploitation of its natural symbiosis with chickpea for effective nodulation, maximum grain yield in chickpea under the agro-climatic conditions. The 27 treatments of bio-fertilizers and seed priming for chickpea variety (Pant G-186) were evaluated following 12 quantitative characters viz, Days to 50% flowering, Days to maturity, plant height on 30 and 60 days, number of branches on 30 and 60 days number of pods per plant, number of seeds per pod, biological yield per plant harvest index (%), seed yield (kg/ha), 100 seed weight (g). The treatment P2 T12 (Rhizobium 12.5 g) was found best in, all the treatments. Maximum number of pods per plant (75.38) and seed yield (Kg/ha) (2170.08) was recorded in Inoculation with Biofertilizer (Rhizobium).
