Visual selection methods for seed yield in early segregating populations of chickpea crosses

International Chickpea Newsletter (12): 9-11

Visual selection methods for seed yield in early segregating populations of chickpea crosses

Results of selection for superior, poor or random plants carried out in the F2 of 2 crosses for such characters as general vigour, fruiting branches/plant and pods/plant indicated that F2 selection for superior plants conferred a slight advantage in the F3 in terms of average yield given by superior lines and number of superior lines.
