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 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... The results of experimental research are used to improve the process as tissue culture media and methods continue to be optimised in ongoing research... 9) One week later, or when plantlets have grown about the way up the vessel, remove the culture vessel completely 10) Cover the plantlet with a clear cellophane bag with aeration holes (we use supermarket bread bags)...
