Broad sense heritability and genetic advance for grain yield and yield components of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) genotypes in western Ethiopia

Genetic variability is a prerequisite to crop improvement. The objective of the present study was to assess and quantify the genetic variability, estimate heritability and genetic advance for yield and yield contributing characters of released and pipeline chickpea varieties based on agro- morphological traits. A total of 16 chickpea materials (8 improved varieties, 7 advanced lines, and one local check) were planted in...
