Diagnostic research on performance of Chickpea (Cicer arietinum) variety under chemical fertilizers use was conducted in IAAS farm of Paklihawa Campus, Nepal to reveal both short term and potential long-term problems in chick pea cultivation in Nepal and evaluate the yield of check pea under chemical fertilizers use. There were three replications of the treatments. The treatments were found significantly different for vegetative as well as yield parameters. The issues for chickpea were found to include pest and diseases, mid-season moisture stress and weed problems. Optimum seedling rate is one of the most important production factors for higher grain yield as well as for quality crop. Indiscriminate use of seed and fertilizer not only increases the production cost but usually decrease yield. The overall performance of check pea was found better under chemical fertilizer application though pest infestation was high.
