Cluster Analysis in Chickpea Genotypes and Relations amongst Important Quality Parameters


1 Selçuk Üniversitesi, Ziraat Fakültesi, Tarla Bitkileri Bölümü, Konya DOI : 10.21566/tarbitderg.280383 - In the present study, relations amongst the important quality parameters, direct-indirect effects on protein ratio in chickpea seeds were evaluated and dendrogram was made by cluster analysis. Statistical analysis showed that there was significant-negative relation between (-0.8030**) protein ratio and non-nitrogenous pith substances while there was significant-positive (0.7535*) relation between protein ratio and sulfur content. Results of the path analysis showed that oil ratio, content of boron and phosphorus and content of nonnitrogenous pith substances are important characteristics in case of protein based Works due to having high value of direct effect. Cluster analysis showed 2 main groups and distance among the genotypes was ranged from 1.74 to 5.93 values. Keywords : Correlation, indirect effect, quality in chickpea, path analysis
