ICCV 92318, a new kabuli chickpea cultivar developed from (ICCV 2 x Surutato) x ICC 7344, was selected for multilocation evaluation along with the controls DZ 10-4 (local cultivar) and Arerti (standard cultivar). The trials were conducted at 7 locations in Patancheru, Andhra Pradesh, India, during 1999/2000 and 2000/01 and at 4 locations during 2001/02. The overall average yield of ICCV 92318 was 2546 kg/ha against 2864 kg/ha for Arerti and 2093 kg/ha for DZ 10-4. Although ICCV 92318 was not superior to Arerti in yield, it was selected for release primarily because of its attractive and larger (35 g per 100-seed weight) seeds compared to Arerti (26 g per 100-seed weight), and high resistance to Fusarium wilt (Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. ciceris). It was released as cv. Chefe in 2004.
