GenesisTM 090 is the “benchmark” ascochyta resistant, small kabuli chickpea in southern Australia. Broadly adapted with high yield potential.
It is medium flowering and maturing, which makes it suitable for most growing areas.
Resistant to ascochyta blight and requires management similar to other resistant varieties.
Not suitable for crop topping and its height makes it unsuitable for weed wiping.
Suits many farming systems including inter-row sowing into standing stubbles and wider (>30cm) row spacings.
GenesisTM 090 has predominantly 7-8mm seed, which is smaller than AlmazA (8-10mm).
Grain prices will be lower than large kabuli price but usually higher than a desi price.
