To study the “Effects of sowing time and spacing on growth and yield of chick pea for green pod in Middle Gujarat Agro-Climatic Condition” was conducted at Agricultural Research Station, Anand Agricultural University, Derol during 2015-16 to 2017-18. The experiment was laid out in a Split Plot Design (SPD) with Three replications and thirty six treatment combinations, comprising of main plot as date of sowing (D1: 17th Sep. (38th Std. week), D2: 24th Sep. (39th Std. week), D3: 1st Oct. (40th Std. week), D4: 8th Oct. (41st Std. week), D5: 15th Oct. (42nd Std. week) and D6: 22nd Oct. (43rd Std. week))and sub plot Spacing (S1: 30 X 10 cm and S2: 45 X 10 cm) of chick pea. The results of present experiments showed that the significantly D3: 1st Oct. (40th Std. week) recorded highergreen pod yield (1554, 1713,1861 and 1709 kg/ha) was found in GG-2 variety during the all the year and pooled analysis. Spacing S2 (45x10 cm ) recorded higher green pod in yield (1144, 1486, 1568 and 1399 kg/ha) was found non significant during first two year, while significant in third year and pooled analysis.
