A study was undertaken to evaluate the performance of three chickpea varieties (Flip-1, Flip-2 and Flip-3). Field experiment was performed at research area of Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, University of Sulaimani, during spring season of 2014. Experiment was laid out in randomized complete block design (RCBD). There was a significant genotypic difference with respect to all studied characters except number of branches/plant and dry shoot weight. Chickpea variety Flip-2 showed best performance as it gave significantly higher total weight (8.84 g), dry shoot weight (1.52 g), dry root weight (0.91g), and weight of pods. The highest seed yield (3.86 g per plant) was recorded in Flip-2. The associations of different characters have been assessed. There was significant positive correlation of plant height with fresh shoot weight (r=0.75*) and fresh root weight (r=0.79*). On the others hand, the correlation between plant height and dry root weight was negative (r=-0.81*). The result showed a significant negative correlation of total weight with fresh shoot weight (r=-0.79*) and fresh root weight (r=-0.79*). There was significant positive relationship between dry shoot weight and weight of pods (r=0.67*). The maximum correlation was observed by fresh shoot weight and fresh root weight (r=0.99**).
