Abstract:
The present study entitled Genetic divergence for seed yield, morpho-genetic and quality traits in chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) was carried out at Pulses Research Sub-Station (PRSS), Samba, during Rabi seasons 2017-18 and 2018-19. The experimental material comprising of 48 chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) genotypes along with 5 checks were evaluated in Augmented Block Design at two locations viz, Advanced Center for Rain-fed Agriculture (ACRA), Rakh Dhiansar and Pulses Research Sub-Station (PRSS), Samba. Analysis of variance indicated the presence of notable genetic variability among chickpea genotypes for yield and quality traits for all the character studied. Estimates of components of variance indicated that genotypic variance contributed maximum to the phenotypic variance thereby, suggesting that the available genetic variability can be exploited through selection and hybridization. The variation present in the chickpea genotypes under study can be exploited through selection and hybridization among identified genotypes for breeding high yielding chickpea genotypes.
