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.

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.

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
