Chickpea itself has no close wild relatives within its species, Cicer arietinum , and earlier attempts to cross chickpea with distant relatives using conventional hybridisation methods were unsuccessful... We conclude that barriers to wide crosses in chickpea using conventional methods occur after fertilisation, leading to abortion of the hybrid seed before maturity... The success of the project in achieving confirmed hybrids of chickpea X C. bijugum in tissue culture, which have never been achieved using conventional methods, has created much interest among chickpea breeders and researchers and we have been encouraged to continue the research...

Chickpea has potential for high profit return in the international marketplace, worth $165M in 2007/2008... Knowledge of isolate population variation within and among chickpea growing regions is required in order to determine the risk for the pathogen to potentially overcome disease management and control strategies... Understanding the risk will better inform and prepare breeders and farmers for the disease management that will be necessary to maintain good crop yields and quality...

Controlling Phytophthora root rot (PRR) in chickpea crops is a two-step process, says Dr Kevin Moore, a plant pathologist from the New South Wales Department of Primary Industries (DPI) in Tamworth... In a paper presented at the March GRDC Research Update in Goondiwindi, Queensland, Dr Moore emphasised that although there are no in-crop control measures for PRR, there are two steps that reduce the risk of damage... Dr Moore leads the chickpea component of a GRDC-funded research project that includes investigating the effects of PRR on commercial chickpea varieties, advanced breeding lines and hybrids with wild relatives of chickpea...

The entire chickpea genome has just been sequenced, providing chickpea breeders with a powerful tool for lifting the performance of this increasingly important crop - both in Australia and internationally... The genome sequencing project was designed especially to help breeders improve cultivated varieties by sampling the whole gene pool - elite varieties, landraces and wild species... " the study will provide access to 'good genes' to speed up breeding, and to genomic regions that will bring genetic diversity back from landraces or wild species into breeding lines...

Growers are being encouraged to submit samples of desi and kabuli chickpea seeds as part of a Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) project focused on eliminating grain defects in chickpeas... The call for samples follows the appearance of seed markings in some desi and kabuli chickpea crops again this year on the back of weather damage... Dr Jennifer Wood from the NSW Department of Primary Industries (NSW DPI) is gathering research to map the incidence of defects against weather data across Australia, to determine the underlying causes of chickpeas genetic susceptibility...
