Abstract

Studies were e conducted on forty one chickpea genotypes from Spain, India, Syria and Egypt to evaluate their performance under local conditions, their subsequent use in breeding programme and to establish a selection criterion for varietal improvement in chickpea. The genotype FLIP 97-149C exhibited high physiological efficiency with maximum harvest index of 41.5% followed by FLIP 97-28C (39.1%). Maximum economic yield was found to be 165g for FLIP 97-149C followed by Sel 93TH24483 (139g). Biological yield was maximum for the genotype FLIP 97-95 C (950g) followed by FLIP 93-260C, FLIP 96-90C, FLIP 97-116C AND Sel 93TH24483 (500g each). Biological yield and harvest index showed negative correlation (r2=-0.025) while economic yield and harvest index were positively correlated (r2 = +0.698) and economic yield (r2 = +0.598) and harvest index (r2 = +0.398). The results suggested that the yield of chickpea could be improved by improving the harvest index.
