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 ...
Lentil canopy modification through architecture and stem stiffness
Current large green lentil cultivars similar to the cultivar Laird are susceptible to lodging in Saskatchewan. The goal of the study was to identify characteristics of lentil canopy architecture that will lead to reduced ...
Pulse crop breeding update
The pulse crop breeders at the Crop Development Centre (CDC)/Department of Plant Sciences are developing improved cultivars of lentil, field pea, chickpea, dry bean and faba bean for producers in western Canada. General ...
Plant genomics in lentil breeding: development of a cDNA-based rapid screening method for Ascochyta blight resistance in lentil (Lens culinaris L.)
Ascochyta blight causes severe crop losses in temperate lentil production areas around the world, including Saskatchewan. At present there is no reliable system available to breeders for identifying blight resistant lentil ...
Irrigation scheduling of pulse crops
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 ...
Dry beans in Saskatchewan
New Ascochyta resistant lentil varieties
Ascochyta blight, caused by the fungus Ascochyta babae f.sp. L. is the most important lentil disease in Saskatchewan. Laird lentil is grown on 70 to 80% of the lentil area in Saskatchewan. It has extra large seeds that ...
