What does the Chickpea Project offer?
Scientific expertise of its technical team
The consortium of the Chickpea Project has a team of scientists involved in the chickpea genome sequencing project and with over 20 years of experience in breeding chickpea.
Plant breeding in chickpea
In our chickpea catalog, we have materials resistant to rabies and Fusarium, two of the most common diseases affecting this crop; and these are a promising source for developing new resistant varieties.
If you have a variety with problems of productivity, diseases or environmental adaptation, from the Chickpea Project we can provide you with a solution through the development of new varieties.

Whether you are a large corporation or a small farmer, in the Chickpea Project we can provide tailored support with any project that is related to this legume. We can design complete projects, ranging from the design and selection of fields to the final harvest of chickpea, as well as advising on what varieties are most suitable and providing solutions to your problems with pests/diseases.
Based on the experience of our team of scientists, catalog of materials, cultivation and knowledge of available germplasm of the species, we can design the R&D you need for the strategic requirements of your business in the short, medium and long term.
