509. Auld, D.L.. 1982. Garbanzo beans - a potential new pulse crop for Idaho.. ID Agr. Expt. Sta. Bull. #615.
Yields around 2000 lb/ac; describes basic production practices for northern Idaho; early spring seeding recommended, in 6 inch rows with 1-2 seeds per foot; weed control is essential, as chickpeas are poor competitors; seed can be direct combined. T: seed yield size, planting date, row spacing, weed control.

816. Bezdicek, D.. no date. (Influence of residual soil N on N2 fixation; N2 fixation of chickpeas). unpublished.
High levels of residual soil N decreased N2 fixation. There was a negative correlation between the fraction of plant N derived from N2 fixation and total mineralizable N and KCl extractable N. N2 fixation was reduced by about 2.8 kg/ha for each kg/ha of available soil N. Seed yield response from inoculation ranged from 5-70% and was negatively correlated with available soil N. Residual soil moisture in July was greatestfor large seeded legumes > forage legumes > winter wheat. T: N fixation in chickpeas.

Describes chickpea culture in the Palouse region; best varieties were UC-5 and Mission; yields range from 2000-3000 lb/ac; inoculation with proper Rhizobium is essential; several herbicides are available; aphids are the only insect pest; several diseases pose problems; a good domestic market is available.
