Résumé
In this study two conventional cultivation treatments as controls (K1 and K2) and three ridge and furrow micro-catchment cultivation techniques (SH1, SH2 and SH3) were investigated in Erciyes University Agricultural Research and Training Center in Kayseri, one of the semi-arid regions of Turkey to determine effectiveness of ridge and furrow micro-catchment rainwater harvesting technique (RFRH). Azkan and Çakır chickpea cultivars (Cicer arietinum L.) were used as plant materials. Completely randomized split plots in blocks experimental design was used and each treatment were replicated three times. Along the growth season 190.8 mm rainfall was recorded. Chickpea consumed around 328 mm water for whole treatments. Seed yield per plant for water harvesting treatments were found 61.4% higher than ones for control treatments. Although higher seed yield per plant obtained from RFRH treatments, seed yield of RFRH treatments were similar to K1 due to lower plant density in RFRH. Seed yield per hectare were 1314 kg, 835 kg, 1329 kg, 1376 kg and 1420 kg for K1, K2, SH1, SH2 and SH3, respectively. Although K2 and SH1 had nearly same plant density, SH1 produced 55% higher seed yield. According to the results, water harvesting configuration consist of 50 cm covered ridge and 40-50 cm furrow width with two chickpea rows were offered to obtain higher yield. Key words : Chickpea, rainfed farming, Ridge and furrow micro catchment rainwater harvesting technique.
