Can wild chickpeas reduce the nematode problem in Australian crops.. A new international collaboration between Australia, the United States and Turkey is seeking to tap into the genetic potential of wild chickpea to create more resilient and nutritious varieties... For the Australian contribution to the project, researchers will be specifically interested in the genetic resistance of wild chickpea to the root-lesion nematode (RLN), a microscopic worm that feeds on and damages the roots of susceptible crop hosts, like chickpea and wheat, limiting the plant's ability to access soil water and nutrients, thereby stunting it growth and reducing yield...

Efficient was the Green Revolution strategy for improving grain yields that gains from the key yield traits are now exhausted.. C 4 plants are responsible for 30 per_cent of CO 2 fixed by plants but constitute just five per_cent of the Earth's plant biomass... Phenomics in Australia uses technology unavailable commercially anywhere else in the world and the analysis is often undertaken with a keen appreciation for the impact that agronomy and paddock conditions have on a crop's growth characteristics...
