Abstract:

The present research consists of the 40 genotypes of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) was carried out at the Department of the Genetics and Plant Breeding, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Prayagraj during Rabi 2018-19 in Randomized Block Design with three replications with an aim to determine genetic variability, correlation, direct and indirect relationship between yield and its component characters. Significant variability existed for all characters. Based on the mean performance, high seed yield was found for the GPK-1058 followed by BKG-21164, BKG-26212 and IPC-06127. High heritability (>70%) coupled with high genetic advance (>20) were being observed for the 100 seed weight. Seed yield per plant exhibited positive and highly significant correlations with biological yield per plant, harvest index, pods per plant, secondary branches per plant, primary branches per plant at both genotypic and phenotypic level. Path analysis at both genotypic and phenotypic level identified biological yield per plant followed by harvest index, 100 seed weight, secondary branches and seeds per pod important direct components for seed yield per plant. Thus, due consideration should be given to these characters during the selection.
