Evaluation and selection of drought and pod borer (Helicoverpa armigera) tolerant chickpea genotypes for introduction in semi-arid areas of Kenya

Abstract: 
This study evaluated 289 chickpea lines for drought tolerance, and 30 for pest resistance. Several promising genotypes have been identified (ICC 2580, ICC 7272, ICCV 92311, ICC 3362, ICCV 95311, ICC 506, EC 583311, ICCVX 906183-1), and these will be evaluated further in multi-location trials.
Cette étude a évalué 289 lignées de pois chiches tolérance à la sécheresse, et 30 pour la résistance aux ravageurs. Plusieurs génotypes prometteurs ont été identifiés (ICC 2580, ICC 7272, ICCV 92311, ICC 3362, ICCV 95311, ICC 506, CE 583311, 906183 à 1 ICCVX), et celles-ci seront évalués dans les essais en outre à plusieurs endroits.

About the RUFORUM 2010 Biennal Conference
"The 2010 RUFORUM Biennial Conference was the second in the series. The main objective of the Biennial conferences is to provide a platform for agricultural research for development stakeholders in Africa and beyond to actively exchange findings and experiences, while at the same time learning lessons towards improving performance of the agricultural sector and ultimately people’s livelihoods. The biennial conference is RUFORUM’s most comprehensive meeting for the diversity of stakeholders in agriculture. It is especially dedicated to graduate students and their supervisors, grantees in RUFORUM member universities and alumni. It is a platform for peer review, quality control, mentorship, networking and shared learning. This record contains an extended abstract accepted under the theme of Crop Protection"
