ICCV 10 is a short- to medium-duration, high-yielding chickpea variety. It is resistant to fusarium wilt (Fusarium oxysporum), and tolerant of dry root rot (Rhizoctonia bataticola). It is drought-tolerant and is suitable for cultivation in the southern and central zones of India. It was approved for release in these zones under the name 'Bharati' in 1992. It was also released in Bangaldesh under the name 'Barichhola 2' in 1993.

Origin and Development

ICCV 10 was developed at ICRISAT Asia Center, Patancheru, by pedigree breeding from a cross P 1231 x P 1265. Both parents are germplasm accessions from India. The cross was made in 1975, and the F1 was advanced in the off-season nursery at Lahaul Valley, Himachal Pradesh, India. Following single-plant selection in F2, the F3 progeny was bulked. Subsequently, single-plant selections were made in F4, F5, and F6 generations. The F7 progeny was bulked and tested in the International Chickpea Screening Nursery, and later submitted for testing in the A l l India Coordinated Trials during 1986/87. The pedigree of I C C V 10 is ICCX-750841-32P-BP-1P-1P-1P-BP.
