PHENOTYPIC STABILITY OF ADVANCE GENERATION POPULATIONS OF CHICKPEA FOR YIELD AND ITS COMPONENTS

Published on

Nineteen advance generation populations of chickpea and a standard check var. Avarodhi
were evaluated at three locations and stability parameters were studied for grain yield,
seeds/pod, and harvest index. Significant differences were observed among the genotypes
and environments. No genotype showed average stability for all the traits. Cv. G 105 was
observed to have stable performance for grain yield and harvest index, and G 104 for
pods/plant and harvest index. Cv. G 107 for grain yield and G 101 were stable genotypes
for pods/plant with numericalIy better yield and significantly more pods/plant,
respectively. The environmental conditions at Bharari were the best for the expression of
all the traits except harvest index.
 

Keywords: Phenotypic stability, chickpea, yield, harvest index.
