Abstract

Take home messages:
Plant only high quality seed that has been germ and vigour tested and treated with a registered seed dressing
Avoid poorly drained paddocks and those with a history of lucerne, medics or chickpea Phytophthora root rot, PRR; do not grow Boundary if you even suspect a PRR risk
Select best variety suited to soil type, farming system and disease risk
Beware Ascochyta: follow recommendations for your variety and district
Minimise risk of virus by retaining stubble, planting on time and at optimal rate, controlling weeds and ensuring adequate plant nutrition
Test soil to determine risk of salinity and sodicity – do not plant chickpeas if ECe > 1.0-1.3 dS/m.
Beware early desiccation of seed crops – know how to tell when 90-95% seeds are mature
