Abstract

Various genetic parameters such as heritability, phenotypic (PCV) and genotypic (GCV) coefficients of variance, heritability, correlation coefficients and direct and indirect path effects were estimated in 62 genetically diverse lines of kabuli chickpea. High estimates of PCV and GCV were obtained for pods per plant and seed yield. Seed length and harvest index had high estimates of heritability. Number of leaves had positive associations with 100-seed mass and leaflet area. The 100-seed mass, seed diameter, and seed length were positively associated among themselves. Seed length was positively correlated with seed yield and harvest index. Pod per plant, harvest index, 100-seed mass, and seed length had positive direct effects on seed yield. The non-significant association of 100-seed mass with seed yield indicated that the selection for high seed yield should be based on genotypes having optimum seed mass in kabuli chickpea.
