Effect of Cutting Chickpea at Different Dates on Green Fodder and Seed Yield Under Rainfed Condition

Rahmat Ullah Khan, Abdul Rashid and Ahmad Khan

Abstract:
Field experiments were conducted during 1994-95 and 1995-96 to determine the effect of removing (cutting) the top growth of the crop at different interval on green fodder and seed yield of chickpea c.v. NIFA-88. Date of cutting included i.e. Nov 29, Dec 14, Dec 29, Jan 13 and Jan 28 including control both the year respectively. All the cutting treatments reduced the seed yield significantly with the production of green fodder as compared to un-cut check crop. Cutting at ground level produced maximum green fodder but lowest seed yield. Also plant height, number of pods per plant were gradually reduced and the maturity was delayed by cutting as compared to control (un-cut) crop. It has been concluded from the results obtained that cutting reduced the yield components, seed yield and delayed the maturity of chickpea crop by effecting its physiological growth of the plant under arid condition of D.I.Khan.
