The Chickpea Project
Project Summary: Symptoms of a health issue were first reported in chickpea fields in southern Saskatchewan during the 2019 growing season and have continued to be observed during the 2020 and 2021 seasons. A definitive cause of the health issue in chickpea has not been identified but work is ongoing to continue to rule out causative factors. In an effort to understand the soil moisture and environmental conditions conducive to the onset of the health issue, a collaboration with SPG, Crop Intelligence, and chickpea growers in southern Saskatchewan occurred during the 2021 season. 5 field-scale chickpea monitoring sites were established and monitored on a regular basis throughout the season. As part of a larger survey initiative, plant samples and field management history were also collected to gain further understanding about the impact of herbicides, moisture, disease and fungicides on chickpea.
Please consider joining us. Further conversations and discussions are welcomed to protect this important pulse crop.
