Effect of Inter and Intra Row Spacing on the Yield and Yield Components of Chickpea
Yousaf Ali, M. Ahsanul Haq, G.R. Tahir and N. Ahmad

The investigation was carried out to evaluate the influence of plant population on the seed yield and its components of a chickpea mutant (CM 2). Three each of inter (10, 20, 30 cm) and intra (5, 10, 15 cm) row spacings with plant population of 200, 100, 67, 50, 33 and 23 plants per m2 were included. The results indicated that increase in inter and intra row spacings significantly increased the plant height, number of pods per plant, seed yield per plant and per plot. It is suggested that for obtaining better yield in (CM 2) the crop should be sown at 23 plants per m2 instead of previously reported, optimum population of 33 plants per m2.
