test chickpea

Catalogue: GRDC Media
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...
