Table 2 Analysis of variance for different traits of early growth stages, physio-chemical characteristics and grain yield at different locations Where, RLSI: root length stress tolerance index, SLSI: shoot length stress tolerance index, FWSI: fresh weight stress tolerance index, DWSI: dry weight stress tolerance index, CMS: Cell membrane stability, ELWL: excised leaf water loss, NRA: Nitrite reductase activity, RWC: relative water contents, NIAB: Nuclear Institute for Agriculture and Biology, AARI: Ayub Agricultural Research Institute, K.Kot: Kalur kot farms

From: Selection and screening of drought tolerant high yielding chickpea genotypes based on physio-biochemical indices and multi-environmental yield trials
