 Information Profile @ a Glance  
  • Chickpea (Cicer arietinum) is a high value pulse crop used almost entirely for human consumption Chickpeas are grown in rotation with cereals.
  • Chickpea seeds are eaten fresh as green vegetables, parched, fried, roasted, and boiled; as snack food, sweet and condiments; seeds are ground and the flour can be used as soup, dhal, and to make bread; prepared with pepper, salt and lemon it is served as a side dish.
  • The large, white-seeded types, known as kabuli chickpea or garbanzo bean, is a popular salad item
  • The small, dark-seeded type, known as desi chickpea, is used as split chickpea in dhal or ground into flour.
  • Chickpea seed should be of sound quality with high germination, purity and free of disease. Seed should be germination tested before sowing.
  • Chickpea leaves may prove to be an excellent alternative food source in malnourished populations of the world, with a mineral content that matches or exceeds spinach and cabbage.
  • Chickpeas are rich in protein, complex carbohydrates, and fiber, while low in fat and cholesterol Ascochyta blight of chickpeas is caused by the fungal pathogen Ascochyta rabiei.
  • This disease is usually first noticed in late winter when small patches of blighted plants appear throughout the paddock
  • Genesis 090 is a high yielding and widely adapted small seeded kabuli chickpea with resistance to ascochyta blight.
  • Harvesting of chickpeas can take place when the seed moisture is 18%.It may test dry after  harvest, but it takes some time for the moisture in the large seed to equalize across the entire seed.
  • Chickpeas mature in 3-7 months and the leaves turn brown/yellow during maturity Chickpea or Chana, as it is popularly know in India, is a native to the Middle East and has been grown traditionally throughout the semi-arid regions of India and the Mediterranean. Chickpea is the third most important pulse crop (after dry bean and pea) and makes up for 20% of the world pulse production.
  • Chickpea is used exclusively as food in many countries, though it is used as livestock feed in Mexico.
  • Major producers of chickpea include India, Pakistan, and Mexico. Turkey, Mexico, Iran, Australia and Canada are the main exporters.
  • Mediterranean, South Asian and South American countries are the main importers.
  • North America has a small domestic market for chickpea and chickpea products.
  • Canada is the world’s largest producer and exporter of peas and lentils and second largest producer and exporter of chickpeas to an expanding market.
