A study was carried out to investigate the genetics of crude fibre content in two crosses of chickpea, P 9623 x T39-1 and RS 11 x T 39-1. The parents selected differed significantly for this character. The study revealed the dominance of high crude fibre over low fibre content. The frequency distribution for each F2 was near normal suggesting polygenic control for this character. Transgressive segregation was observed towards high fibre content in both the crosses indicating the presence of genesior high fibre content in low parents as well. Desi type segregants with low fibre content were obtained. This has implications for increased dhal recovery.
