International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics ICRISAT. (1/1/1990). Chickpea in the Nineties: Proceedings of the Second International Workshop on Chickpea Improvement. India.
This workshop brought together leading chickpea scientists from around the world to: summarize the present status of chickpea production and utilization; review progress since the first international chickpea workshop in 1979; project future goals for production and use of chickpea; identify constraints impeding progress, and research needed to reach these goals; prioritize research required to overcome the constraints; recommend and develop collaborative research proposals based on these priorities; and suggest the resources and training required to effect these proposals. These proceedings update information on work on chickpea since 1979. They contain 31 full papers covering; chickpea status and potential, utilization, genetic resources and enhancement of germplasm, physiology and agronomy, pathology, insect pests, breeding strategies and approaches to crop improvement, and transfer and exchange of technology. In addition there are 20 abstracts on recent advances in chickpea improvement that cover all the main chickpea growing areas worldwide, reports of discussions and recommendations. All abstracts, discussion reports, and recommendations are published in French and English.
