Dr Viola Devasirvatham undertaking a chickpea heat-tolerance field experiment at the Plant Breeding Institute at Narrabri... The discovery of heat-tolerant chickpea genotypes may improve the reliability of yields in the northern grainbelt of Australia and other semi-arid environments around the world... Crop phenology (days to first flowering, days to 50 per cent flowering, days to first pod and days to maturity), growth (plant height, plant width and biomass at harvest) and grain yield (including pod number per plant, filled pod number per plant and seed number per plant) were recorded in both seasons...

Heat tolerant sorghum to boost production in the north.. "Planting at this time increases the risk that high temperatures will coincide with the emergence and flowering of the seed head-a time when the crop is most susceptible," Professor Hammer says... Dr Scott Chapman, a senior researcher from CSIRO who presented the heat-tolerance research findings at the GRDC Updates earlier this year, says the key message to growers is that genetic variation for heat tolerance around flowering has been found...
