Genetic variability created through biparental mating in chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.)

Published on

Biparental mating was attempted in the F2 of ICCV-10 x
SG-256 cross of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.). The
biparental population (SIP) had better mean performance
than the F
3 selts for all the characters under study. The
lower limit of the range was, in general, smaller for almost
all the characters in the SIP. The upper limit" had also
increased in the desired direction for all the characters.
Sufficiently high genetic variation was maintained In the
SIP population for most of the characters except for
secondary. branches. SIP also exhibited improved estimates
of heritability and genetic advance. The utility of biparental
mating in early segregating generations in chickpea is
