Abstract

Stability parameters were studied during rabi seasons 2007-08, 2008-09 and 2009-10 among seventeen genotypes of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) for seed yield and its components. The objective of this study was to explore the effect of genotype (G) and genotype × environment interaction (GE) on grain yield. The development of genotypes, which can be adapted to a wide range of diversified environment, is the ultimate goal of plant breeders in a crop improvement program. Genotype GNG 469 was the most stable for seed yield / plant. Genotypes were found stable for yield and yield contributing traits viz., number of seeds / pod (SCS3, 90201, C81 and PBG1), number of pods / plant (95909, 90201) and 100 seed weight (C17, SCS3). The study validated that the seeds / pod, 100 seed weight and plant height were important characters for improvement of seed yield / plant in chickpea.
