4612. Muehlbauer, F.J.. 1990 Jan.. Pulse crops for drier areas.. presentation at Dryland Extension Agent Training, WSU, Pullman, WA.
For the 14-16" rainfall zone, two pulse crops may be suitable as fallow replacements - the small red lentil and the desi chickpea. The desi chickpea has no insect pest at this time, and does not require seed treatment. It is primarily sold to the export market.

5474. Pumphrey, F.V., T.R. Toll and B.L. Klepper. 1985. Edible legume seed yield and water use.. OR Agr. Expt. Sta. Special Report 738, p.44-49.
General growth characteristics, seed yields, and water use of four edible legumes grown at the Pendleton Station are reported. Brewer and Chilean 78 lentils are not as adapted to this climate as are Latah peas. Chickpeas produced yields, seed size, and seed color which would warrant further testing of this species. Production of Diana fababean was not encouraging because of its growth habit and productivity. T: Flowering, maturity and seed yield of legumes, Pendleton, OR. Average weekly water use for Latah peas, Brewer lentil, chickpea, and Diana fababean, Pendleton, OR.

7786. Engel, R., L.E. Welty, R. Lockerman, J. Bergman, G. Kushnak, L. Prestbye, and J. Sims. 1987. Annual legumes and cereal grain rotations in Montana.. Montana AgResearch 4(3):1-4.
Montana researchers examined the performance of several grain legumes (dry pea, chickpea, lentil) and their effect on a subsequent barley crop. Dry pea production was the highest. A subsequent barley crop rsponded to added N fertilizer at three out of six sites. Barley yields following legumes were generally equal to or greater than yields following fallow. The annual legumes contributed to soil N and reduced the fertilizer N needed to reach maximum yield by 40-55 lb N/ac when compared to recrop barley. This translated into savings of $10-14/ac for fertilizer N.
