Catalogue: GRDC Research Summaries
Most chickpea cultivars grown by farmers in Mediterranean and Australian environments are susceptible to ascochyta blight, affected by terminal drought, susceptible to vegetative and flowering stage cold... Sources of resistance for Ascochyta blight, drought, and Fusarium wilt identified in the first phase of the project were introgressed into Australian adapted cultivars... To enhance the knowledge and accelerate the process of developing new chickpea varieties possessing tolerance/resistance to these traits, seeds of three recombinant inbred (RI) populations for drought, Fusarium wilt and cold tolerance have been increased...

Scores of growers recently gathered at a series of field days across Australia to learn more about growing pulses... On hand were traders, breeders, researchers and agronomists who spoke about market demand, using pulse crops as disease breaks, the nitrogen benefits of pulses and planting pulses for weed control to augment the traditional option of growing crops only for grain... Participants also heard talks on the latest varieties released by Pulse Breeding Australia (PBA)...

Taste test sought for Australian chickpeas.. Each panellist sampled a range of different chickpea varieties for a range of characteristics including appearance, aroma, fingerfeel, mouthfeel, taste and aftertaste... By training and testing the panel, my aim was to make the members expert in chickpea tasting."..

Lines with high levels of resistance to these pathogens have been used by the Improvement Program to generate germplasm with multiple disease resistance... The arrows represent the anticipated improvement in combined resistance which can be expected in varieties that will be released in the future... During the course of project DAQ 00108 we have maintained a watching brief on diseases of pulses and sunflowers in the northern region through regular crop surveys, and intelligence from samples submitted for diagnosis and our network of growers, advisers and industry...
