Ascochyta resistance in lentil (Lens culinaris Medikus)
The genetic basis of resistance to Ascochyta blight was determined for 20 lentil genotypes and six F2 populations. Plants were space planted in rows in the field with adjacent spreader rows of the susceptible check Spanish ...
Progress in reduction of dry bean harvesting losses
Development of a laboratory protocol for evaluating canning quality in dry bean
Results of studies on the effect of canning variables on canning quality traits were used to develop a modified laboratory protocol for evaluating canning quality of navy, black and pinto beans. Calcium concentration was ...
Use of isozyme markers to select for resistance to Ascochyta blight in lentil
The possible linkages of isozyme loci with genes for resistance to Ascochyta blight, caused by Ascochyta fabae f. sp. lentis Gossen et al., was investigated in lentil (Lens culinaris Medikus). The F2 seeds of five crosses, ...
Genetic study of Ascochyta blight resistance in chickpea and lentil
Ascochyta blight is responsible for severe crop losses in most chickpea and lentil production areas around the world. The research was conducted to study the genetic basis for Ascochyta blight resistance in chickpea and ...
Redefining irrigated field pea agronomy
Adaptation of chickpea to high latitude areas with short growing seasons: biomass and seed yield responses
This study was conducted to determine plant establishment, biomass and seed yield of chickpea under diverse environmental and crop management conditions. Four cultivars were grown on three types of seedbed using N ...
Redefining the agronomy of fababean for irrigated production in south-central Saskatchewan
Two years of research on irrigated fababean production are completed. Evaluation of seeding dates on a field scale showed that early seeding increases yield and seed size. Research of seeding rates for two varieties at 20, ...
