Genetic variability studies on yield and yield components of chickpea conducted during rabi, 2000-2001 revealed maximum variability for branches per plant followed by pods per plant and seed yield. High heritability was noticed for days to 50% flowering and test weight indicating that improvement is possible through direct selection in respect of these traits. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance observed for days to 50% flowering, pods per plant and seed yield indicate additive gene effects. Correlation studies revealed that plant height and pods per plant were significantly and positively correlated with seed yield. Therefore, emphasis should be given to these characters for effective selection.
