Inheritance of double flower per peduncle and flower colour in chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.)
AbstractThe double-flower per peduncle trait is known to contribute to increased seed yield in chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.). Reciprocal crosses have been done between white single-flowered kabuli type (BARI chola-8) and the pink double-flowered deshi type (BARI chola-4). Results obtained in this investigation indicated that the single flowered trait in chickpea was completely dominant over double-flowered trait since all the population of F1 are single flowered and in F2 single and double flower segregate following 3:1 ratio which indicate Double-flowered trait controlling by a single loci recessive gene. In this experiment it was found that double flower per peduncle trait is highly heritable character in chickpea. In case of flower color pink color is complete dominant over white flower color and white flower color were governed by single recessive gene. Therefore, manipulation of these traits is easy.
