A team of scientists from the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) have written a manual entitled ‘Chickpea seed production’ which promises to provide comprehensive information on improved seed production technologies for growing a healthy seed crop of chickpea and storage of chickpea seed.

The manual, which addresses topics such as Seed systems in India, Seed production technology and Seed processing, amongst others, is intended for chickpea seed growers involved in formal and informal seed systems. The publication has been supported by the Tropical Legumes II project, twin of GCP’s Tropical Legumes I (TLI) project.
