Abstract

The research was carried out to determine suitable chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) genotypes with large seed and high yield to be able to grown in winter. Yield and yield components were investigated in 22 chickpea genotypes, which were obtained from ICARDA, and Aydin-92 (check) in 1999-2000, 2000-2001 and 2003-2004 growing seasons. According to the combined analysis of three years, seed yield was ranged from 1582 to 2132 kg ha-1. X 93 TH 56-3/2, and FLIP 90-58 C genotypes were determined to be adaptable to Mediterranean conditions and produce larger seeds and higher yield than Aydin-92. Besides, significant and positive correlations between seed yield and total pod number, full pod number, seed number, seed weight, and harvest index were determined in this research.
