Field experiments were conducted in Tatkon and Zaloke Research Farms to investigate the effect of different crop management practices on growth, yield and yield components of Yezin-6 chickpea variety during the winter season from November 2018 to February 2019. Randomized Complete Block design (RCB) was used with four replications. There were eight different treatments with four replications in both experiments. For foliar application of particular treatments, Hyper Grow foliar and Calbomag Super had applied at 30, and 45 DAS, respectively. Plant growth performances had significantly different among the crop management practices in Tatkon research farm whereas those parameters had not significantly different in Zaloke research farm. The highest LAI was observed from T8 (1.14) and the lowest LAI (0.74) had recorded from T1. The higher seed yield was recorded from T8 (1,116.21 kg ha-1) and was not significantly different from T5, T6 and T2 while the lowest seed yield (kg ha-1) was recorded in T1 (767.14 kg ha-1). In Zaloke research farm, seed yield was not significantly affected by different crop management practices. The maximum seed yield was produced by T8 (982.38 kg ha-1) whereas the minimum seed yield had obtained in T1 (674.35 kg ha-1). The higher net monetary returns and gross profit margin had obtained in T2 at Tatkon research farm while that in T6 achieved at Zaloke research farms. Therefore, the results of present study indicated that weeding and foliar application are the major crop management practices to obtain high net monetary return and high yield as well.
