Role of Rhizobium Inoculation in Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) Under Water Stress Conditions

Rahat Parveen, M. Sadiq and Muzammil Saleem

Abstract:
Two chickpea varieties viz., 90122 and 93081 were subjected to Rhizobium inoculation with BioPower under water stress conditions, imposed by withholding water. Stress reduced all the parameters including yield components and this effect was more pronounced by stress at reproductive stage as compared with vegetative stage. Rhizobium inoculation enhanced yield under both normal and stressed conditions, but its performance was better under normal than under stress. Rhizobium inoculation proved ineffective to recover loss caused by water stress. The two varieties exhibited statistically non-significant differences.
