Chickpea sowing date, Yorke Peninsula (Arthurton), South Australia locations
Aims
  • To maximise yield, quality and agronomic performance of new chickpea varieties through the identification of optimum sowing dates.
Key messages
  • A dry (but mild) finish to the season meant that yields were less than the previous seasons but still above average, and there was less biomass production and disease pressure, resulting in low amounts of plant lodging.
  • As expected, lodging was greater at the earlier sowing date, but was generally only minimal.
