Abstract:
The experiment was conducted to estimate variability, heritability and genetic advance, correlation among yield and its component traits. Maximum GCV and PCV were recorded for seed yield/plant, biological yield and pods/plant. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance was registered for pods/plant and biological yield. High genetic advance as percent of mean recorded for pods/plant and biological yield. Seed yield/plant exhibited significant and positive correlation both at genotypic and phenotypic levels with biological yield, pods/plant and harvest index. Heritability, genetic advance and correlation coefficient analysis indicated that these traits may be used for the selection of high grain yielding chickpea genotypes to improve yield of chickpea.
