Phenological characteristics of chickpea by Stability analysis


Oral Duzdemir

This study aimed at determining the influence of genotype x environment interactions on phenological characteristics of chickpea. Field experiments were carried out on four different locations, in semi-arid conditions, in complete randomized blocks design with four replications from 2001 to 2002. Eleven certified and 3 indigenous varieties were used. Emergency date, first flowering period, flowering period and vegetation period were examined as phenological characteristics. For all characteristics, important changes, source of genotype x environment interactions, were determined at P<0.01. Stability analysis was carried out for all characteristics according to Finlay-Wilkinson and Eberhart-Russel models. Stable genotypes for each characteristic were found for two parameters.
