Sowing time x variety x plant population, LRZ (Yenda), New South Wales locations
Aims
  • To test the yield response of eight chickpea varieties across 3 different sowing times and two
    targeted plant populations in southern NSW.
Key messages
  • Early to late May was optimum for planting chickpeas at Yenda in 2010. This season was
    one of the most favourable experienced for many years. However, during a normal season in this lower rain zone, greater moisture and heat stresses will occur, later sowings will be
    more exposed to climate stress and yields will be lower. These findings support conclusions
    from the Wagga Time of Sowing trial reported above - late April to early May is the optimal
    window to plant chickpeas in southern NSW. In the drier Yenda environment (compared to
    Wagga), sowings should be targeted more towards the first half of this window.
  • PBA Slasher, CICA0603 and Genesis 509 (all desi types) were the best varieties especially
    when sown in May and June. Genesis 090 and Genesis 079 (kabuli) performed well at the
    May planting only.
  • Plant population had little or no affect on yield or seed size.
