Early maturing advanced breeding lines evaluated
• Every year ICRISAT supplies advanced breeding material to several national and international partners in the form of International Chickpea Varietal Trials (ICVT). During 2015-16 season, ICVT-Desi was supplied to 27 locations in India. Trial consisted of 18 advanced breeding lines and one common check (JG 11). • These lines had early to medium maturity with acceptable seed color and 100-seed mass. Data was recorded on days to 50% flowering, days to maturity, 100-seed mass and seed yield. • Trials from various locations were analyzed individually.
