A field experiment was conducted to evaluation the effect of mode of application with integrated nutrient management on growth and yield and chickpea, field experiments was carried out in 2013-14 growing seasons. Experimental units were arranged in Factorial Randomized Block Design (RBD) with three replications. The highest amounts of yield and yield components were obtained in Basal application with 80% of inorganic source of fertilizer with seed treatment of PSB. The significant highest seed yield 18.62 q hectare-1 was calculated with basal mode of fertilizer application which was 8.38%, 9.46% and 16.73% more seed yield over seed incorporation, broad casting and control. The highest benefit cost ratio 1.93 was also calculated with the same treatment. All of the growth characters viz. plant height, number of primary branches, fresh weight, dry weight at harvest and yield attributes i.e. number of pods plant-1, number of seeds plant-1 and number of seeds pod-1 were found to be significantly maximum in basal application of 80% of inorganic source with PSB seed treatment
