Take home message Low temperatures and frost caused losses up to 100% in many 2009 chickpea crops Chickpeas won't hold a pod until average daily temperature reaches15C Temperature records in the canopy can explain why flowers and pods abort Plant at the optimum time to maximize WUE and yield and minimise frost damage.. The low temperature effects on chickpea reproduction were exacerbated by frosts on 28 Sep and (in some places) 8 Oct 09... Conclusions Low temperatures and frost caused losses up 100% in many 2009 chickpea crops Chickpeas don't form fertile flowers and keep pods until average daily temperature reaches15C Temperature readings, preferably collected in the canopy, can be used to explain why flowers and pods abort Planting at the optimum time maximises WUE and yield and can minimise frost damage..
