Although there were various studies reported in the literature showing suitability of different Indian cultivars of desi chickpeas for puffing (Hira and Chopra, 1995; Bhattacharya and Prakash, 1997), knowledge of Australian desi chickpea performance in this respect was lacking... Seeds that appeared to be visually puffed (cracking/opening of the outer husk, golden yellow coloured cotyledon with volume expanded) were totalled and a puffed percentage (%) calculated by taking the ratio of the number of puffed chickpeas to the number of total chickpeas... The first study was carried out to measure the puffing feasibility of Australian desi chickpea genotypes, as no previous works were reported in the literature...

Chickpea grain defects can cost a grower $50 to $80 per tonne, and knowing which varieties are susceptible to these defects, and what environmental conditions encourage these defects, is key knowledge to combat them... GRDC and the New South Wales (NSW) Department of Primary Industries (DPI) launched research to mitigate the impact of chickpea grain defects and diseases in the north... Dr Jennifer Wood and Dr Kevin Moore from NSW DPI are mapping the incidence of defects and disease against weather data across Australia, to determine underlying causes and genetic susceptibility...

Farmers can potentially save themselves time, effort and money by taking advantage of seed testing services now available for chickpeas... Through a project supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) and the NSW Department of Primary Industries (NSW DPI), grain growers can test chickpea seed for pathology, germination and vigour at no extra cost through the NSW DPI at Tamworth... The test also tells farmers whether the seeds carry seedborne diseases such as Ascochyta blight and Botrytis grey mould...

Cowpea bruchids are sometimes called cowpea weevils but they are not true weevils... Heavy bruchid infestations can lead to overheating of seed in storage, resulting in reduced quality (in addition to physical damage) and moulds... Eggs are laid on maturing pods in the field, but in storage are laid directly onto the seeds...

No matter whether chickpea seed is acquired commercially or grower retained on-farm, it is important that it is of high quality... Poor quality seed can result in low plant establishment due to poor germination, vigour and/or disease... Seed size can also be quickly calculated at home by counting out 200 seeds and weighing - multiply the weight (grams) by five to get a 1000-seed weight; or divide 200,000 by the weight (grams) to get number of seeds per kilogram (depending on your preferred method of calculating seeding rates)...

DNA testing of 36 seed lots from commercial chickpea crops identified a high incidence of genetic contamination.. Growers can minimise the risk of planting the wrong variety or a mixture of varieties by acquiring planting seed from a reputable seed supplier.. Selected results from 36 chickpea seed lots ex 2011 harvest showing the variety declared at receival, 100 seed weight and identity of each of 8 seedlings as determined by four SSR markers based on DNA profiles..
