Abstract: This field investigation was carried out with the objective to study the “Effect of lime, boron and sulphur on germination of chickpea in acidic soils of Jharkhand”. The experiment was carried out during Rabi season of 2022-23 in the experimental field of Department of Agriculture, Jharkhand Rai University, Ranchi. These were eight treatments with three replications consisting of three components viz. lime (@3q/ha), boron (@1kg/ha) and sulphur (@20 kg/ha) in different combinations as basal along with the recommended dose of fertilizer (25:50:25 kg/ha). Observations were recorded on three parameters viz. germination percentage, vigour index and number of days taken in germination. RDF+ Lime @3q/ha + Sulphur@20 kg/ha+Boron@1 kg/ha recorded higher germination percentage and germination index. Then was no effect of lime, sulphur or boron on days taken in germination. Though the number of days in germination reduced due to NPK application. The maximum number of days taken for germination was observed in control plot.
