ICCV 82108 is a high-yielding, and double-podded desi variety which has performed well over a wide range of climatic conditions in Nepal. It was released in Nepal in 1990 for general cultivation. ICCV 82108 is resistant to race 1 of Fusarium oxysporum and is relatively less susceptible to Helicoverpa armigera pod borer, gray mold (Botrytis cinerea) and root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne spp) than the control, Dhanush. It has shown good adaptation to irrigated and rainfed conditions, and to late sowing.

Origin and Development

ICCV 82108 was developed by pedigree selection f r om a cross made in 1976 at ICRISAT Asia Center between segregating F2 plants of crosses JG 62 x WR 315 and P 1363 x PRR 1. The F2 population was screened in a multiple disease-infested field that had a high incidence of fusarium wilt, and Rhizoctonia bataticola, Rhizoctonia solani, and Fusarium solani. Single-plant selection was followed until F5 when it was bulked as selection no. ICCX-761470-BP-1P-BP-BP and supplied as an entry (ICCL 82108) in the International Chickpea Cooperative Trial to the National Grain Legume Research Program (NGLRP), Nepal, in 1985/86.
