Sanobar Khudaybergenova (Producer). (11/6/2019). Chickpea: an alternative crop for rainfed agriculture in Uzbekistan.
In Uzbekistan, where agriculture is an important source of income for rural population, land degradation is a major challenge for the environment and the food security. The traditional focus of rainfed agriculture on production of grains with intensive mechanical soil tillage leads to depletion and loss of topsoil. Growing legume crops like chickpeas, can improve the soils.
