Fifteen lines and three well adapted varieties were planted for crossing in Chickpea on Nov. 25, 1994. Lines were used as the female and varieties as the male. Crossing was carried out from Feb. 19 to April 1, 1995. All the crosses were attempted between 1.00 A.M. to 5.00 P.M. The emasculation was followed by immediate pollination. Number of buds pollinated and number of pods set were recorded weekly. Success rate of crosses in per cent was calculated. The success rate was highest in case of 2nd week followed by 3rd week. Higher pod setting was primarily due to low minimum temperature, low humidity and more sunshine hours.
