RESEARCH REGARDING THE AGRONOMIC VALUES OF SEVERAL CHICKPEA GENOTYPES
AbstractChickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) is the third most important pulse crop (after dry bean and pea) and makes up 20% of the world pulse production. Twelve chickpea crosses, from ILC482 and Diyar 95 crossing, and four chickpea varieties were evaluated for yield and its components over three years in Diyarbakir, Turkey. Days to flowering in crosses was changed from 75.42 to 79.92 days. Days to maturity were varied from 109.0 to 120.2 days. Parents had the minimum and maximum time to flowering and maturity. Some crosses were taller than their parents were. Seed weight of all crosses was larger than the small seeded parent ILC 482. Grain yield was not changed among lines, and selection was done for earliness, plant height and seed weight.
