In this study, the relationships between grain yield and yield characteristics were analyzed by running correlation and linear regression analyses. In the study, the herbal properties of 18 registered chickpea varieties and 3 local chickpea lines were used. The trials were continued for two years in two locations in the transitional zone of the Antalya-Korkuteli-Ulucak village and the coastal conditions of Antalya Aksu in the western Mediterranean region. According to the results of correlation and regression analysis, significant correlations were found between the yield and the number of the days to 50% emergence (r = -0.6707 and p<0.01), the number of days to 50% flowering (r = -0.6446 and p<0.01), number of days to maturity (r = -0.7303 and p<0.01), plant height (r = 0.4304 and p<0.01), first pod height (r = 0.5990 and p<0.01), number of pods per plant (r = -0.1681 and p<0.05) and the number of seeds per pod (r = 0.2696 and p<0.01). Although the data obtained as a result of the regression analysis did not exactly match the data determined, it was determined that close or average values could be reached, which may be beneficial for breeding activities.
