Production of pulse crops and their yield stagnation last so many years. It has been estimated that India’s population would reach 1.68 billion by 2030 from the present level of 1.21 billion. Accordingly, vision of Indian Institute of Pulse Research, 2030, the projected pulse requirement by the year 2030 would be 32 million tons with an anticipated required growth rate of 4.2%. Apart from this, Indian pulse remains competitive to protect the indigenous pulse production. Among the pulses, chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) play a vital role in total pulse production. This review paper highlights the role of phosphorus (P) in chickpea production.
Key words: Chickpea, phosphorus, nutrient management.
