Abstract

This research study was carried across the field of 14 farmers of subdivision (tahseel) Hyderabad (rural), Sindh province of Pakistan during Rabi season, 2021-22 to evaluate the performance of the chickpea variety DG92 as well as to find out the potency of a new chickpea belt in Sindh province of Pakistan. The field study was conducted in a three replicated randomized complete block design (RCBD). Different fields of fourteen (14) farmers were taken as treatments; these were (T1 = Farmer 1, T2= Farmer 2, T3 = Farmer 3, T4 = Farmer 4, T5 =Farmer 5, T6 = Farmer 6, T7 = Farmer 7, T8= Farmer 8, T9 = Farmer 9, T10 = Farmer 10, T11 = Farmer 11, T12 =Farmer 12, T13 = Farmer 13 and T14= Farmer 14) and evaluated the performance of chickpea variety DG–92 for various agronomic traits over the fields. The results showed that the highest plant population m-2 (32.95) was recorded at farmer 4 and the lowest (22.89) at farmer 10. The maximum plant height (77.23 cm) was recorded at farmer 1 and the minimum (48.63 cm) at farmer 8. The maximum branches of plant-1 (21.70) were recorded at the farmer
1 and the minimum (7.37) at farmer 5. The maximum pods plant-1 (75.28) were recorded at farmer 3 and the lowest (30.30) at farmer 8. The maximum seeds plant-1 (152.37) were recorded at farmer 4 and the lowest (37.97) at farmer 8. The maximum seed weight plant-1
(25.40 g) was observed at farmer 4 and the minimum (6.74 g) at farmer 8. The maximum seed index (310.42 g) was recorded at Farmer 5 and the minimum (216.03) at Farmer 8. The maximum seed yield (1713.7 kg ha -1) was observed at Farmer 1, the minimum (309,0kg ha-1) at Farmer 7and the maximum biological yield (5140.9 kg ha-1) was recorded at Farmer 1 and the minimum (929.8 kg ha-1) at farmer 7. The findings suggest that subdivision Tahseel Hyderabad rural has the great potential to cultivateChickpea (Gram) crop to add another major Pulse crop in the cropping pattern of the area during Rabi season.
