Two lines with white flower (PG-82-1, L-550) and two lines with pink flower (Pant G114,
C235) were planted for crossing In chickpea, using pink flowered lines as male parents. Three
hundred selected buds in each cross were poUinated with 'and without emasculation, respectively.
In the FI' plants with pink flowers ranged from 6.00% to 10.33% and from 17.66% to 24.66%
with an average of 8.08% and 21.66% in method I and method II respectively. It indicates that
method II (without emasculation) of hybridization can be efficiently used in presence of marker
