Aims

To investigate effects of changing row spacing on chickpea yield.

Key messages
  • The 50cm row treatments were significantly lower yielding in all varieties.
  • There were no significant variety by row spacing interactions.
  • Varieties were significantly different with Genesis509 the top yielding variety at 19 cm, 30cm or twin rows.
  • The twin row arrangement (two rows 35/15cm apart) showed similar results to the 19cm or 30cm rows.
