Grains Industry Research Scholarship - Viola Devasirvatham (US) The basis of chickpea heat tolerance under semi-arid environments in India and Australia

Plain text source: 
With future global warming, it will be useful to identify heat tolerant chickpea genotypes for hot environments... The research will test the hypothesis that there is genetic variation in heat tolerance among chickpea genotypes... The research aims to evaluate yield and phenology of diverse chickpea genotypes under heat stress in India (InternationaI Crops Research Institute for Semi-Arid Tropics) and Australia (Plant Breeding Institute, Narrabri) over two growing seasons...
