Abstract:

Line source sprinkling irrigation system was used to evaluate potassium (K) and othermajor osmolytes (sugars, proline, total amino nitrogen, and potassium) in respect withdifferential yielding capabilities of two groups of chickpea varieties (BR group withbrown-red seed and PY group with pale yellow seed) under water deficit. Leaf waterrelation parameters, osmolytes, and total osmotic potential at full turgor (
