Abstract

Variability and correlation coefficients in 80 genetically diverse chickpea genotypes were studies. High amount of genetic variability was expressed by pods/plant, 100-seed weight, biological yield per plant and seed yield per plant. These characters also exhibited high predicated genetic advance with high heritability. Seed yield was significantly and positively correlated with plant height, length of pod bearing branch, secondary branches/plant, pods per plant, 100-seed weight, Biological yield per plant and harvest index.
