Abstract

An experiment was conducted to study the variability of characters under different parameters
in fifty diverse genotypes of kabuli chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.). Analysis of variance revealed
significant genotypic differences for all the ten characters with wide range of variations. Estimates
of genotypic and phenotypic co-efficients of variation were high for seed yield per plant and
number of pods per plant. Broad sense heritability was higher for all the traits except plant
height. High genetic advance expressed as a percentage of mean was exhibited by seed yield per
plant and number of pods per plant.

Keywords
