Evaluating Chickpea Genotypes for Resistance to Ascochyta Blight in Nebraska

R. M. Harveson, C. A. Urrea, and D. D. Baltensperger

July 2009


A major factor affecting chickpea production in Nebraska is Ascochyta blight. Identification of genotypes with improved resistance to the disease is critical to rapid development of new blight resistant cultivars and to the future of this crop in Nebraska and other areas of the Central High Plains. The objective was to assess Ascochyta blight reaction and yield for selected chickpea parental genotypes and cultivars.
