Chickpeas - delayed sowing varieties, MRZ locations
Aims
  • To investigate the impact of delayed sowing on grain yield and quality (compared with varieties in C2).
Key messages
  • Early sowing generally showed the highest grain yields although there was large variation in yield stability between varieties. Several potential new breeding lines showed high yields and good stability across the sowing dates.
