The field experiment was conducted "Effect of Phosphorus and Iron on growth and yield of Chickpea (var. NBeG-119) during Rabi season, 2021-22 with 9 treatments (viz., Phosphorus at 30,40 and 50 kg/ha respectively and Iron at 3,5 and 7 kg/ha respectively) at the CRF (Crop Research Farm) Department of Agronomy, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology And Science, Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh, India. The treatment compared T1- Phosphorus 30 kg/ha + Iron 3kg/ha, T2- Phosphorus 30 kg/ha +

Iron 5kg/ha, T3- Phosphorus 30 kg/ha + Iron 7kg/ha, T4- Phosphorus 40 kg/ha + Iron 3kg/ha, T5- Phosphorus 40 kg/ha + Iron 5kg/ha, T6- Phosphorus 40 kg/ha + Iron 7kg/ha, T7- Phosphorus 50 kg/ha + Iron 3kg/ha, T8- Phosphorus 50 kg/ha + Iron 5kg/ha, T9- Phosphorus 50 kg/ha + Iron 7kg/ha. Application of phosphorus 40 kg/ha + Iron 5kg/ha recorded highest plant height (69.10 cm), plant dry weight (25.00 g/plant) number of branches per plant (2.33), number of nodules/plant (21.32), plant dry weight (25.00 g/plant) number of seeds/pod (1.93), seed index (309.83 g), seed yield (2.60 t/ha) stover yield (4.23 t/ha) Harvest index (38.08%) highest gross returns (156000.00 INR/ha) net returns (109340.00 INR/ha) and benefit cost ratio (2.34).
