This project will use genetic and agronomic manipulation to enhance production and productivity of chickpea. It will attempt to develop efficient and reliable field and laboratory screening techniques for the evaluation of germplasm and breeding materials for biotic and abiotic stresses, understand their genetic bases, and develop efficient and high yielding cultivars with combined resistances to these stresses through conventional and molecular breeding approaches. The results of this project will be shared with WANA NARES institutions and in areas with similar environments in Australia. It will be conducted with ICARDA, GRDC, and in collaboration with selected NARES institutions
