VARIETAL INDICES FOR SEED YIELD AND DROUGHT TOLERANCE INDEX IN CHICKPEA UNDER DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENTS
Citation :- VARIETAL INDICES FOR SEED YIELD AND DROUGHT TOLERANCE INDEX IN CHICKPEA UNDER DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENTS.Legume Research.2007.(30):148-150
An attempt was made to know the genetic merits of chickpea genotypes based on linear combination of yield components tested in six environments, created by adjusting the moisture availability in three subsequent years for seed yield and drought tolerance index. The estimates of varietal indices varied from genotype to genotype in different environments. Pusa 362 and Ieee 4958 in rainfed condition and Pusa 256 and JG 130 in irrigated conditions appeared as promising genotypes for seed yield. Similarly, ICCC 4958, KPG59, Pusa 362 and JG 130 appeared as promising donor for drought tolerance index based on genetic merits of yield factors in chickpea.
