A field experiment was undertaken at Regional Agriculture Research Station, Nandyal, Andhra Pradesh during rabi 2017-18 on vertisols to estimate of growth and yield parameters of chickpea varieties relative to irrigation and phosphorus levels under irrigated dry condition. The present investigation was carried out with two irrigation levels  (without irrigation and with irrigation) as main plots, two varieties (NBeG 49 and NBeG 119) as sub plots and four phosphorus levels (0,25,50,75 kg/ha) as sub sub plots at plant geometry of (30 x 10 cm  in split split plot design and replicated thrice. The soil of the experimental soil is Moderately alkaline (pH-8.3), non saline (EC-0.15 dSm-1), Low in Nitrogen (113 kg/ha), medium in phosphorus (48.5 kg/ha) and high in potassium (366 kg/ha). Significantly Higher seed yield (1434 kg/ha) and net returns (Rs 37284/ha) was recorded with irrigation compared to without irrigation (1108 kg/ha and Rs 23552/ha). NBeG 49 recorded higher seed yield (1392 kg/ha) when compared to NBeG 119 (1150 kg/ha). Different Phosphorus levels did not influenced growth, yield parameters and seed  yield.

Key words: Chickpea, Irrigation, Varieties, Phosphorus, Seed yield
