Chickpea variety, sowing rate and row spacing trial locations

To determine the best management practices for growing the new varieties of chickpeas here in Condobolin.

Key messages

Due to the lack of rainfall during spring, the resulting yields were very disappointing. Yields were too low to make any reasonable comparisons and consequently, the statistical analysis found no significant difference between treatments.
