Stabilizing yield and quality: early maturing chickpea for the prairies
Progress in chickpea breeding has been constrained by lack of good sources of early maturity in the short-season temperate environment of western Canada. We hypothesized that the length of the chickpea life-cycle could be ...
RAPD and AFLP markers linked to anthracnose resistance gene in PI 320937 lentil (Lens culinaris Medik.)
Colletotrichum truncatum (Schwein.) Andrus & W.D. Moore is the causal fungus for anthracnose disease in lentils. A germplasm accession, ‘PI 320937’, is among the lines used as a resistance source to develop cultivars in ...
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 ...
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 ...
Field survey of kabuli chickpea and dry bean plant spacing uniformity
In an effort to reduce capital expenditures, dryland growers of kabuli chickpea and dry bean in Saskatchewan have been seeding their crops with conventional seeding equipment rather than precision planters. Intra-row plant ...
Red lentil production in Saskatchewan: Y not 2K?
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 ...
Evaluation of a RAPD marker linked to Ascochyta blight resistance in chickpea
Ascochyta blight caused by Ascochyta rabiei is a devastating disease of chickpea. Development of resistant cultivars is the most efficient and cost effective control method. The present study was undertaken to determine ...
