Genetic variability studies for yield contributing traits in Kabuli chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.)

Author(s): RN Arora, Krishan Kumar and Manav
Abstract: Fifty genotypes of kabuli chickpea were studied for assessment of genetic variability at CCSHAU, Hisar during Rabi, 2014-15. All genotypes exhibited wide range of variability for all the characters studied. Maximum variability was recorded for number of pods per plant and minimum for number of days to maturity. There were close agreement between GCV and PCV for number of days to flowering, number of days to maturity and 100-seed weight. Highest heritability was observed for 100-seed weight. Genetic advance as percent of mean was maximum for number of pods per plant. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance was observed in case of number of pods per plant. Thus, it may be concluded that a great amount of variability existed in the present material and it would be desirable to give emphasis on number of pods per plant and 100-seed weight for selection of high yielding genotypes in kabuli chickpea.
