Phenotypic and molecular characterization of germplasm and identification of genetically diverse trait specific sources are important for enhanced utilization of chickpea genetic resources in breeding improved cultivars. Hence, the current study was undertaken to understand the phenotypic and genetic diversity in chickpea reference set, to identify trait specific germplasm and the SSR markers associated with phenotypic variation. The genetic material used in this study was a genotype based reference set of 300 accessions (Upadhyaya et al., 2008) developed from composite collection (Upadhyaya et al., 2006). Reference set and five control cultivars (Annigeri, G 130, ICCV 10, KAK 2, and L 550) were evaluated in five environments [(E1), (E2), (E3), (E5) at ICRISAT, Patancheru, Andhra Pradesh; and (E4) at UAS (University of Agricultural Sciences), Dharwad] in alpha design with two replications. The data were recorded on seven qualitative, 17 quantitative, 10 drought tolerance related, three pod borer resistance and two quality traits. For the molecular characterization of chickpea reference set, 91 SSR markers were used. The results are summarized below....
