Two key genomic regions harbour QTLs for salinity tolerance in ICCV 2 × JG 11 derived chickpea ( Cicer arietinum L.) recombinant inbred lines uri icon

abstract

  • BackgroundAlthough chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.), an important food legume crop, is sensitive to salinity, considerable variation for salinity tolerance exists in the germplasm. To improve any existing cultivar, it is important to understand the genetic and physiological mechanisms underlying this tolerance.ResultsIn the present study, 188 recombinant inbred lines (RILs) derived from the cross ICCV 2?×?JG 11 were used to assess yield and related traits in a soil with 0 mM NaCl (control) and 80 mM NaCl (salinity) over two consecutive years. Salinity significantly (P?
