RESPONSE OF CHICKPEA (CIRER ARIETINUM L.) ARCHITECTURE OF NORMAL AND LATE SOWN CROPS TO GA3 AND CYCOCEL APPLICATIONSNeelima Arora, Ritu Ranjana and Parmil Singh
Cycocel (250 and 500 pg ml-') GA3 (10 and 20 pg ml-') were given as foliar application of chickpea cv. PBG-1 at vegetative (40 DAS) and pre-tlowering (70 DAS) stages at two different sowing dates, normal (21 October) and late (22 November). Cycocel decreased plant height but increased stem girth and number of branches and seed yield in normal sown crop whereas, GA3 recorded decrease in these parameters. The late sown crop suffered decrease in plant height, stem girth and number of branches in general as compared to the control. Cycocel treatment increased the yield compared with that of control in late sowing though it still remained lower that that of normal sown chickpea.
