A field experiment was conducted to study the “Effect of organic manure and bonemeal on chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) yield and yield attributes”. The field experiment was conducted during winter season, 2019 at research block of S.G.R.R. University, Pathribagh, Dehradun (Uttarakhand). The experiment was carried out in completely randomize block design with 12 treatments and 3 replications. The investigation revealed that the performance of Chickpea crop was significantly influenced by different combination of application of FYM + Bone Meal + Vermicompost. Among all the treatments, Treatment T12 (FYM 100 % + bone meal 2 t/h + vermicompost 3 t/h) overall was found best for farmer point of view with respect to plant. Treatment T5 (FYM 50 % + bone meal 0 t/h + vermicompost 0 t/h) came out to be the lowest performed treatment in compared to other.
