chickpea response

Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
Rationale of the research is growing a diverse range of chickpea genotypes for heat tolerance screening in India (International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), Hyderabad) and Australia (Plant Breeding Institute (PBI), Narrabri, New South Wales) over two growing seasons in the field... The broad outcome of this project was to develop an improved understanding of genetic diversity of chickpea genotypes using molecular markers, the effects of high temperature on chickpea growth and yield and to identify traits that can be potentially exploited for future breeding programs on heat tolerance in chickpeas... Improved knowledge of high temperature effects on plant responses under stressed and non-stressed environments is required for effective germplasm screening...
