Effects of climatic stress and soil chemical toxicities on productivity of chickpea in West Asia and North Africa



Effects of climatic stress and soil chemical toxicities on productivity of chickpea in West Asia and North Africa



Adaptation of chickpea and pigeonpea to abiotic stresses Proceedings of the Consultants' Workshop held at ICRISAT Center, India, 19-21 December 1984: 135-141



A major part of West Asia and North Africa is characterized by a Mediterranean climate with cool or cold, wet winters and warm summers. The soils used for chickpea production are generally calcareous and have a high pH. The major climatic stresses to which the crop is subjected include excessively high temp. and drought during reproductive growth. Sowing in winter rather than in the traditional spring reduces the severity of these stresses and increases yields.
