Abstract:

Hundred germplasm lines of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) were grown in RBD with two replications under rain fed season at College of Agriculture, Latur. The maximum genotypic coefficient of variation was noticed for seed yield per plant (32.76%), number of secondary branches (32.6%), test weight (31.28%), total number of seed per plant (28.68%) and number of pods per plant (25.7%). The high heritability in percent coupled with high genetic advance as percentage of mean was recorded by seed yield (75.13, 58.51), number of secondary branches (80.63, 60.31), number of pods per plant (86.7, 49.30), test weight (90.16, 61.18) and total number of seed per plant (91.83, 56.62) respectively, whereas, harvest index showing low heritability (38.27) with genetic advance as percentage of mean (8.82). Seed yield per plant showed high significant positive correlation with test weight (0.728), harvest index (0.439), total number of pods per plant (0.436), number of secondary branches (0.391) and total number of seeds per plant (0.366). Thus, the total pods per plant, total number of seeds per plant, 100 seed weight, secondary branches and seed yield per plant considered as selection criteria, while selecting superior genotypes under rain fed condition. High yielding advanced breeding lines viz. RVSGS 11, PG 12310, BDNG 807, PG 0749, ICC 107, ICC 111, ICC 15105 and G 94 were found suitable for crop improvement and breeding purpose.
