Author(s):

Vishavjeet Singh and Navdeep Gandhi

Abstract:
The experiment was carried out on the field of Mr. Gurmel Singh, V.P.O. Kaliyan, Tehsil and District Sri Ganganagar, Rajasthan, India. The crop was grown in Rabi season of 2017-18 to study the effect of bio fertilizers on cultivation of Chickpea. The bio fertilizers used in the experiment were <em>Azotobacter</em>, <em>Rhizobium </em>and <em>Azotobacter </em>+ <em>Rhizobium</em>. In this experiment the effect of these bio fertilizers was studied on parameters i.e. plant height, number of branches per plant, dry matter per plant, number of pods per plant and yield per plot. From this experiment, it was observed that maximum plant height, number of pods, dry matter, number of branches and yield per plot was obtained from the plot having the combined effect of <em>Azotobacter </em>+ <em>Rhizobium</em>. Results revealed that there is decrease in these parameters as observation from the plot having no application of <em>Azotobacter </em>and <em>Rhizobium</em>. From this experiment it was studied that the combination of these two bio fertilizers is best for chickpea.
