Abstract

Forty genotypes derived through multiple crops of desi x desi have been evaluated for developmental and morphological traits. Maximum variation was observed for seed yield followed by biological yield, 100 seed weight, plant height and harvest index. Biological yield had positive association with 100 seed weight and seed yield. Path coefficient analysis revealed the direct contribution of biological yield and harvest index towards seed yield. Multiple regression analysts indicated the contribution of period from flowering to maturity and biological yield towards seed yield. Implications of these findings in relation to selection of high yielding early duration chickpeas has been discussed.
