Chickpeas - varieties (traits), HRZ South West locations
Aims
  • To investigate the adaptability of a range of chickpea varieties and breeding lines to the high rainfall zone.
Key messages
  • Chickpeas produced highly profitable yields in the HRZ in 2016, but production risks are high and crops such as .faba beans, peas and lupins remain a more reliable option. Careful selection of soil types not susceptible to waterlogging is required for successful chickpea production
