Chickpea disease management, Turretfield, mid North, South Australia locations
Aims

To maximise production advantages of new kabuli and desi chickpea varieties through the development of appropriate disease management strategies.

Key messages
  • Dry and hot conditions prevailed throughout late winter and spring limiting disease spread and plant growth.
  • There was no fungicide treatment effect on grain yield in 2007.
  • Fungicide treatments at early podding (pod), early and late podding (podplus) and strategic sprays (strat) had larger seeds than the control, but not significantly larger than fortnightly or systemic sprays.
