A spontaneous mutation of the chickpea cultivar K-850 is reported. The mutant had
muItipinnate leaf. The inheritance of this mutant was studied in Fl and F2 generation of the
crosses involving K-850, HYb 16-3 and JG-62 with normal leaf. In the cross Mutant x K-8SO,
F3 generation was also studied. The segregation patterns of these crosses suggested that the
mutation is monogenic recessive.
Keywords: Chickpea, Cicer arietinum, multipinnate leaf, genetics.
