One positive in 2006 was the performance of many chickpea crops,which by harvest were able to take advantage of strong market demand By Kellie Penfold and Rebecca Thyer Key points - Chickpea demonstrates tolerance for hot dry conditions - Lower than average yields, but high prices - Big increase in plantings expected in 2007.. Trotter, from JJS Glass, feels the 2006 season demonstrated that chickpeas have a big future: "If managed correctly, they can still average 0.3 tonnes a hectare in years like 2006, and at $650 a tonne, that's an exceptional return given the season.".. I will plant as many chickpeas as I can in 2007." He expects interest in chickpeas to be high this year because of their performance in 2006...

South Australian pulse growers are being advised to closely monitor crops due to the high risk of diseases... South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI) senior pulse pathologist, Dr Jenny Davidson, says prolific crop canopy development has occurred in a number of pulse crops across SA due to high rainfall and warmer than average May and June temperatures... Botrytis grey mould does not normally occur in chickpeas in SA, but if chickpea crops develop heavy canopies and conditions are suitable for Botrytis grey mould (over 18C with high humidity), then these crops will also need to be sprayed with a fungicide, according to Dr Davidson...

A damaging line-up of five crop pathogens can slash northern region chickpea yields when seasonal conditions are right but new prevention guidelines mean growers are better prepared... We advocate paddock selection to minimise phytophthora root rot as the first priority; then implementation of an appropriate ascochyta blight strategy based on rain forecasts and the level of varietal resistance," Dr Rainbow says. ".. Growers can use paddock selection to reduce inoculum by considering crop sequence, previous occurrence of diseases, proximity to crop residues, and herbicide history, he says...

Chickpea grain defects can cost a grower $50 to $80 per tonne, and knowing which varieties are susceptible to these defects, and what environmental conditions encourage these defects, is key knowledge to combat them... GRDC and the New South Wales (NSW) Department of Primary Industries (DPI) launched research to mitigate the impact of chickpea grain defects and diseases in the north... Dr Jennifer Wood and Dr Kevin Moore from NSW DPI are mapping the incidence of defects and disease against weather data across Australia, to determine underlying causes and genetic susceptibility...

Controlling the major fungal diseases of chickpeas in the northern region requires an integrated approach to disease management and prevention... Although burning chickpea stubble reduces inoculum, it does not ensure freedom from AB or botrytis when chickpeas are next grown in that paddock... Poor-quality seed can lead to: seed-borne diseases caused by AB and botrytis; poor establishment and crop performance; reduced plant vigour (which increases susceptibility to soil-borne and foliar pathogens); patchy, uneven plant stands (increases susceptibility to weeds, aphids and viruses); uneven and delayed crop maturity (resulting in problems with desiccation timing and mixed grain samples); and lower yields from a combination of the above...

A number of diseases potentially impact on chickpea yield... For Ascochyta, apply a preventative spray of a registered product at the recommended rate to ALL varieties (regardless of resistance status) prior to the first rain event, three weeks after emergence or at three leaf stage, whichever occurs first... For all other varieties apply a fungicide before the next rainfall event if two weeks have elapsed; monitor and repeat sprays if necessary...
