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...

Wind speed and direction should be measured at 2m above the ground at the site of application, in an area free of obstructions that may impede air flow... relative humidity should be measured at 1.25m for record-keeping purposes, but should also be checked at the target to determine and compare Delta T values (temperature and humidity) for making decisions about droplet survival and target susceptibility... Wind speed and direction, temperature and relative humidity should be measured and recorded at the site of application...
