An investigation was carried out during the Rabi season of 2005, 2006 and 2007 at Zonal Research Station, Darisai, East Singhbhum of 13irsa Agricultural University, Ranchi, Jharkhand, India to evaluate the effect of component contribution on chickpea production. The full package of practices (FP) resulted higher plant height (58.64cm), number of pods per plant (34.72), thousand seed weight (157.79g), seed yield (10.90 q/ ha) and straw yield (16.96 q/ha) of chick pea. The maximum net return (16490 Rs/ha) and benefit: cost ratio (1.72) was recorded from the treatment full package of practices and which was followed by full package-improved variety (1.60), whereas the minimum from control. The maximum seed yield, net return and B: C ratio can be obtained by adoption of full package of practices. Fertilizer and plant protection measure was the most important production component, which contribute more over yield as compared to other components.
