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 unpublished.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.

4536. Moodie, C.D. and S.C. Vandecaveye. 1944. Yield and nitrogen content of chickpeas, Cicer arietinum, as affected by seed inoculation.. Soil Sci. Soc. Am. Proc., 8:229-233.
A study of 2 yrs duration was made of the effect of inoculation upon the growth and nitrogen content of chickpeas. It was shown that chickpeas are readily inoculated, nodulate very proficiently by a suitable species of Rhizobium, and do not belong in the R. leguminosarium cross inoculation group. Chickpeas appeared to be more efficient in fixing atmospheric nitrogen than are field peas, and since they are grown as an intertilled crop some of the aspects of summer-fallowing are retained. The data obtained under the conditions of the experiments indicate that in so far as soil nitrogen economy is concerned the inclusion of chickpeas in the agricultural practice in the semi-arid area in eastern Washington where the annual rainfall is 18 inches or more offers considerable promise as an improvement on summer-fallow when grown in rotation with wheat. T: Yields and nitrogen content of chickpeas in 1941. Height, yield and nitrogen content of chickpeas in sand culture. Grain yields and nitrogen content of green and mature tissues of chickpeas in 1942.

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.

4647. Muehlbauer, F.J., R.W. Short, W.J. Kaiser, D.F. Bezdicek, K.J. Morrison, and D.G. Swan. 1982. Description and culture of chickpeas.. WSU Coop. Ext. Bull. EB 1112.
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. T: varieties, yields, herbicides, WA, ID

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.
