A study was conducted during Rabi 2008–09 to evaluate the impact of seed size on seed yield of kabuli chickpea genotypes. Three groups of seed size viz., group 1 (20–30 g), group 2 (30.1–40 g) and group 3 (>40 g) per 100-seed comprising of 18, 99 and 25 genotypes, respectively were used for this study. The estimates of different parameters of three different group of seed size showed that seed yield decreased with the increase in seed size. The correlation and regression coefficient was positive for the group 1 while negative for other two groups of large seed size which further confirmed this observation. It was also observed from the results that seed size up to 30 g/100-seed was useful to realize maximum seed yield.
