Abstract: 

Recent researches show foliar applied methanol increases growth and development of numerous C3 crops in warm and arid growing conditions. So an experiment was carried out in split plot based on randomize complete block design with three replications during 2009 growing season at Mashhad Ferdowsi University, Agricultural Station. Irrigation (100, 75 and 50 percent of water requirement) was main plot and foliar application of methanol (0, 20, 40 and 60 volume percent) was subplot. Each concentration of methanol spryed on chickpea shoots after podding with 10 days interval. The results showed that the effects of foliar application of methanol on yield and yield components were significat. Spray of 60 percent methanol affected biological yield, yield and yield components more than other treatments. So that increased number of pods, 100-grain weight, number of secondary branch per plant, plant height, seed weight, seed number per plant and harvest index.
