Host-plant resistance in Chickpea IPM

Host-plant resistance

A few pest-tolerant genotypes were developed, but possess undesirable characteristics such as small seeds.


The search for pest-resistant genotypes with desirable factors like agronomic performance, consumer preferences, and also disease resistance is continuing.

Cultural control
Farming systems can be manipulated in a variety of ways. These options include:

--> Early or delayed sowing
--> Selection of the intercrops
--> Altering plant density or arrangement
--> Sowing genetic mixtures to reduce the severity or impact of insect pes



Intercropping chickpea with safflower, linseed or coriander to reduce the impact of Pod Borer (H. armigera).
