Abstract

Correlations and path coefficient analysis were worked out for eleven characters including seed yield in fifty chickpea genotypes during rabi 2002. Plant height, number of primary branches, number of pods/plant, 100 seed weight, biological yield/plant and harvest index had positive and significant correlation with seed yield. The positive direct effect onseed yield was revealed by plant height, number of primary branches/plant, number of pods/plant, biological yield/plant, harvest index, days to maturity and soluble protein content. The magnitude of residual effect was very low which indicated that the eleven characters included in the present study contributed most of the portions of the variability in the seed yield. Therefore these traits can be taken into consideration while exercising selection for seed yield in chickpea
