Variability for seed size and seeds per pod in the Kabuli chickpea germplasm

Variability for seed size and seeds per pod in the Kabuli chickpea germplasm

International Chickpea Newsletter (2): 4-5

Seed size and seed per pod are two important characteristics considered in chickpea research. Large-seeded types fetch better prices, and higher seed numbers per pod are usually associated with higher yields. Kabuli germplasm maintained at the ICARDA research center in Aleppo, Syria, was evaluated to determine the range of variability for these two traits. It was concluded that large-seeded plants have one seed per pod, but that the pod has the capacity to hold more than one seed.
