- Agriculture is being affected adversely by exposure to accumulation of Green House Gases in the atmosphere and potential warming. Present study deals with impact of climate change on chickpea in a subhumid climatic environment using Info Crop model. Simulation studies done, based on the results of the field experiments at Pusa and Patna. Simulation was performed with HadCM3 factors with current climate as baseline at two centres located in agroclimatic zones (I and III) of Bihar for different future time periods. The results showed that under changed climate, at Pusa sowing of chickpea on 15th November, 22nd November and on 29th November showed upward trend in yield from baseline upto 2080. However the yields increase was at declining rate in future time periods. At Patna, simulated yield showed a declining trend from the baseline yield except during the planting window of 22nd November. The simulation study indicates that zone I (Pusa) is more favourable for chickpea as compared to zone III (Patna).
