A field experiment was conducted for two consecutive years to study impact of weather on performance of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) grown in vertisol with integrated organic nutrient management practices of northern dry zone of Karnataka, at Agricultural Research Station, Annigeri, UAS, Dharwad, Karnataka during rabi seasons of 2009-10 and 2010-11. The experiment was laid out in RCBD with three replications. There were 18 treatment combinations consisting of four different organic manures in combination viz., farm yard manure (FYM), vermicompost (VC), glyricidia leaf manure (GLM), enriched compost (EC), neem cake (NC) and four different liquid manures viz., panchagavya, biodigester, cow urine and vermiwash with two control treatments RDF and absolute control (water spray). In both the years 2009-10 and 2010-11, the yield attributing parameters like number of pods per plant (66.38), number of seeds per pod (1.23), test weight (20.91 g), grain yield (2400 kg/ha) and halum yield (3156 kg/ha) were recorded with the treatment combination of EC 1/3rd+VC 1/3rd+GLM 1/3rd equivalent to 100% RDN+panchagavya @ 3% spray at flower initiation and 15 days after flowering DAF compared to other treatment combination and absolute control.
