This research was carried out in Central Anatolian region (in Haymana, Turkey) throughout 2 years (2002-2003). The objective of this study was to determine the effects of different soil tillage methods, weed control and phosphorus fertilizer doses on yield and yield components of chickpea. The experimental design was split plot with three replications. In the research, two different soil tillage methods (moldboard plow and rotary tiller), two weed control methods ( hand weeding and herbicide application) and three phosphorus doses (30, 60 and 90 kg P2O5 ha-1) were used. According to the results, different soil tillage methods had effect on the number of plant at emergence. Tradational Tillage (TT) plots values had higher than Minimum Tillage (MT) values. Except harvest index, weed control methods had effect on all of the yield components. Hand weeding is the most effective method in weed control. When hand weeding isn`t possible in wide areas, herbicide application may advice as an alternative solution. Phosphorus fertilization may provide high yield in chickpea.
