Character means of six generations (P1, P2, F1, F2, BC1 and BC2) of six inter varietal crosses in chickpea were used to detect epistasis and gene effects for yield and seven yield components. All the eight characters appeared to be complex as genetic interaction manifested in all crosses for most of the characters. Both additive and nonadditive gene effects were recorded for days to flower, primary and secondary branches, No. of pods, and grain yield per plant.



Cicer arietinum, gene effects, generation mean.
