Abstract


An investigation was planned to compute and compare the nature and magnitude of correlations among various characters in the biparental progenies (BIPs) and the corresponding selfed generation of F2population derived from KWR 108 X IPC 94-19 crosses of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.).The biparental population had higher magnitude of correlation co-efficients than the F3 selfs. In both the populations, association of number of pods with seed yield was high and positively significant, highlighting the facts that pods per plant is the most important yield contributing character in chickpea. The utility of biparental mating in early segregating generations like F2 in breaking unfavourable association in chickpea is emphasised
