Abstract:

The experiment on forty genotypes along with three check varieties of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) were assessed to work out the genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance effects of their various attributes on seed yield. The high magnitude of genotypic and phenotypic coefficients of variation were observed for seed yield per plant, 100- seed weight, seeds per pod, primary branches per plant and pods per plant, indicating thereby, substantial scope for improvement in this character after hybridization and subsequent selection and the high estimate of heritability with high genetic advance in per cent of mean were observed for 100-seed weight, seed yield per plant and seeds per pod. The highest seed yield per plant was produced by KWR 108 (18.84 g ), while the lowest seed yield per plant were given by BGD 1081 and Phule G 0405 (6.60g). High heritability and genetic advance indicate that the additive nature of gene action and reliability of those characters for selection and emerged as ideal traits for improvement through selection.
