Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L) is one of the most important cool food season legumes grown in Central and West Asia and North Africa (CWANA). Although substantial research has been done for the improvement of the crop, major breakthroughs in increasing its productivity are yet to be achieved. This is partly due to the susceptibility of the cultivated Cicer (cultigen) to a variety of biotic and abiotic stresses, and the lack of adequate variability for traits.
