INHERITANCE OF SPEED OF RADICLE EMERGENCE AND ROOT LENGTH IN CHICKPEA (CICER ARIETINUM L.)

Published on

The inheritance of root length and speed of radicle emergence was studied in chickpea
(Cicer arietinum L.) using six generations (Pt, P:z, Ft, F1 and the first two backcrosses). The
additive and additive x additive gene "effects were important but nonfixable type of gene
action was also present. Therefore, the improvement in these seedling attributes can be
achieved through the methods employing both type of gene effects.
 

Keywords: Cicer arietinum, chickpea, inheritance, root length, radicle emergence.
