Studies were taken up to ascertain the inheritance of n~orphological characters and to determine their association among then~selvesa nd with seed yield and fusarium wilt resistance in chickpea cross, ICCV2 x JG62. lCCV2 is a kabuli type with fusarium wilt resistance and medium bold seed weight of 26 g 100' seeds. JG62 is a typical desi type with 16 g 100' seed weight. However, it is susceptible to fusarium wilt. F, from this cross was grown in a healthy plot as well as in a fusarium wilt-sick plot. Random recombinant inbred lines (RILs) in F,, were also grown in healthy and sick plots. This work was done during the postrainy season 1997/98 on the research farm at the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-hid Tropics (ICRISAT), Patancheru, Andhra Pradesh 502 324, India...
