Abstract

Phytophthora root rot (PRR) of chickpea is endemic and widespread in northern NSW and southern QLD and can cause total yield loss as it did in 2012 in a crop of PBA Boundary near Moree.
As there are no in-crop control measures for PRR, avoidance of high risk paddocks and varietal selection are the only cost effective management tools available to growers.
Current commercial varieties differ in their resistance to P. medicaginis, with Yorker having the best resistance (MR), PBA HatTrick, Flipper, Jimbour, Kyabra having a
lower level (MR-MS) and PBA Boundary having the least resistance (MS).
Since 2007, trials have been conducted to quantify losses caused by PRR in current and advanced breeding lines. In 2012 we also included elite germplasm incorporating very high levels of resistance from a wild relative of chickpea, Cicer echinospermum.
