Fall-sown chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) yields
are often double those of spring-sown chickpea
in regions with Mediterranean climates that have
mild winters. However, winter kill can limit the
productivity of fall-sown chickpea. Developing
cold-tolerant chickpea would allow the expansion
of the current geographic range where
chickpea is grown and also improve productivity.
The objective of this study was to identify the
quantitative trait loci (QT... [more]
