Development of Agronomic Practices for Chickpea Production in Alberta

Chickpea production information has not been developed for Alberta. Information on cultivar performance, inoculation, seeding rates, seeding dates, and fertilizer recommendations will be developed.

IPNI-2000-CAN-AB20

In a year of severe moisture stress, it was very evident that chickpeas are a drought tolerant crop. Yield between the Desi and Kabuli varieties show that the Desi=s may be more drought tolerant than the Kabuli=s. Though the addition of inoculant, nitrogen, phosphate, and sulfate-sulfur resulted in limited yield increase, subsequent years data with average rainfall will be needed to accurately identify benefits of these variables.

Interpretive Summary

Development of Agronomic Practices for Chickpea Production in Alberta, 2002 In western Canada, the chickpea production area expanded rapidly in the years 1998 through 2001. However, the drought and adverse harvesting conditions in the fall of 2001 saw the acreage of chickpea drop by 50% in 2002, down to approximately 600,000 acres.

Development of Agronomic Practices for Chickpea Production in Alberta, 2001 Chickpea production is new to the western Canadian prairies and has been expanding consistently in the past few years. The objective of this study is to evaluate two types of chickpeas under varying management treatments in order to develop agronomic production practices for southern Alberta.

Development of Agronomic Practice for Chickpea Production in Alberta, 2000 Chickpea production on the western Canadian prairies has been expanding consistently in the past few years, with an estimate that production will exceed 1 million acres in the next five years. The objective of this study is to evaluate two types of chickpeas under varying management treatments in order to develop agronomic production practices for southern Alberta.
