Abstract

The impact of future climate change on the chickpea productivity was studied using the sequence analysis tool of DSSAT V 4.5 to simulate fallow-chickpea rotation at four locations viz Anantapur, Kurnool, Kadapa and Prakasam of Andhra Pradesh State. The results indicated that as compared to baseline climate, the climate change to be anticipated by 2069 (Mid –century period) would decrease the yield of chickpea by 4.3 to 18.6 per cent across various locations tested. Yield benefits obtained based on the simulation study from various adaptation options revealed that advancing the sowing window by one fortnight and application of one critical irrigation at 60 DAS found to be beneficial in increasing chickpea yields under climate change scenario.
