Abstract

Forty genetically, diverse chickpea genotypes were studied for genotypic and phenotypic
variabilities, heritability and genetic advance in 18 quantitative traits. Highest genotypic variability
was exhibited by 100 seed weight and was followed by seeds pu plant, pods per plant and seeds
per pod. 100 seed weight also expressed highest heritability and expected genetic advance. Wherea seeds per plant, seeds per pod and pods per plant exhibited high expected genetic advance with considerable amount of heritability
