Abstract

Twenty-six diverse chickpea genotype were evaluated for eight characters in randomized experiment. Significant variation for all traits reflected in ANOVA. Phenotypic variability coefficients were higher than respective genotypic variability coefficients indicating presence of environmental components. Pods/plant exhibited highest genetic advance under selection coupled with high variability and heritability. Selection applied on this trait may result in high genetic gain in yield also.
