Abstract.  Soil moisture stress is a major constraint limiting the growth and yield   of chick pea in a specific   ecosystem.   The physiological traits conferring   tolerance to moisture stress were evaluated   in the field    experiment conducted    at research   farm   of Indira   Gandhi Agriculture    University, Raipur (M.P.)   during rabi 1993-94, involving 13 genotypes.  A significant   delay in flowering was observed due to irrigation.  It also played a significant   role in extension of pod filling period and total crop  duration.   Nodule number/plant, pod number/ plant  and  harvest  index  indicated  distinct  genotypic   differences.
