A field experiment was conducted during rabi season 2018-2019 and 2019-20 at the Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, Jawaharlal Nehru Krishi Vishwa Vidyalaya, Jabalpur (M.P.). The investigation was aimed to study the problematic weeds in chickpea at Jabalpur district of Kymore Plateau and Satpura Hills Zone of Madhya Pradesh. Different weed species which infested the chickpea crop were comprised of broad leaved weeds namely Cichorium intybus, Medicago truncatula, Melilotus indica, Anagallis arvensis and Chenopodium album. Among the associated broad leaved weeds, Cichorium intybus was most important problematic weed in chickpea having the highest relative density (30.36 and 33.80%), frequency (27.27 and 27.27 %), relative dominance (23.41 and 24.90%) and important value index (57.63 and 61.08 out of 200) during rabi season 2018-19 and 2019-20 followed by Medicago truncatula and Melilotus indica. The other weeds viz., Anagalis arvensis and Chenopodium album were of less importance as both weeds attained low value of relative density, relative frequency, relative dominance and important value index.
