Abstract:
Eighty four (84) chickpea genotypes were studied for various yield parameters under field conditions to estimate genetic variability, correlation coefficients and path coefficients. Analysis of variance revealed significant differences between genotypes for nine out of ten traits studied. Maximum variation was recorded for pods per plant followed by plant height, number of secondary branches per plant, number of primary branches per plant, number of seeds per pods. Seed yield was found to have highly significant and positive correlation with number of pods/plant. All the studied traits showed significant differences expect for days to 50% flowering. Mean sum of squares due to genotypes were highly significant for all characters studied indicating the existence of sufficient variability. In general high heritability coupled with high genetic advance was observed for Days to maturity, Plant height (cm), Canopy temperature at vegetative growth (30 days stage), Canopy temperature at reproductive phase (90 days stage), Number of primary branches per plant, Number of secondary branches per plant, Number of pods per plant, Number of seeds per plant, Grain yield per plant (g). Due to strong inherent nature of character, it can be possible to transfer the genetic information from one generation to another and make up the genetically advance chickpea genotypes.
