Chickpea variety x fungicide trial locations

To determine the susceptibility of new chickpea varieties and fungicide treatment against Ascochyta blight.

Key messages

  • The fenugreek variety Power gave the best yield results as expected as Power is the variety for seed production and Might is a fodder variety.
