Abstract. An Investigation was done in educational- research farm of Agriculture college of Shahid Rajaei in Neyshabour from 2010 to 2011 to examine the morphological and physiological characteristic of seven genotypes resistant to drought in chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) whit complementary irrigation (irrigated in planting and flowering period). The test was performed in randomized complete block design with four replications. Results showed that there was considerable diversity among examined genotypes from the phonological (days lasting from planting to flowering and from planting to pod construction), morphological (plant height, plant dry weight, 100 seed weight, seeds yield per square meter(. Comparing the response of genotypes revealed that the MCC80 genotype has the highest rate of seed production, and hence suggested it is most desirable genotype for complementary irrigation in this site.
