Chickpeas - sowing time, LRZ Yenda locations
Aims
  • To compare the growth, development and yield of current commercial chickpea varieties and  promising advanced breeding lines at three sowing dates on a hard-setting, acidic, red-brown soil at Yenda in southern NSW.
Key messages

The resulting time of sowing (TOS) information will be used to confirm and update current agronomic recommendations for chickpea in this region.
