  8. 8. Activity 5.2 Enhance resistance to pod borer by combining different mechanisms of resistance from the cultivated and the wild species •  Promising F6 progenies from C. arietinum (ICC 506) x C. reticulatum (IG 72933) will be further evaluated for resistance to pod borer. •  Seven C. arietinum (JG 130, JAKI 9218, JG 11, KAK 2, JGK 1, ICC 17109, ICC 506) x C. reticulatum (IG 72933) crosses will be advanced to F3.
  9. 9. Activity 5.3: Enhance capacity of NARS in chickpea improvement research and development and provide training to farmers in improved chickpea production technology Development of infrastructure facilities DZARC- •  Upgrading irrigation facilities Ethiopia LZARDI- •  Fencing of experimental area Tanzania •  Establishing of fusarium wilt sick plot •  Renovation of greenhouse KARI-Kenya •  Establishing of fusarium wilt sick plot
  10. 10. Activity 5.3 Training of farmers and extension personnel •  A calendar of training programs developed for each location •  About 100 extension personnel will be provided training on improved technologies for chickpea production in India and ESA •  Over 3000 farmers in India and 1000 farmers in ESA will be provided training on chickpea crop and seed production technologies, and seed processing, storage and marketing.

  12. 12. Objective 8 Developing sustainable seed production and delivery system for reaching the poor in drought-prone areas of SSA and SA Workplan for India
  13. 13. Improving the availability of quality seed and linking formal and informal seed sectors •  About 150 t breeder seed and 600 t other classes of seed (foundation, certified and TL) will be produced by project partners •  About 400 farmers will be trained as seed growers and each farmer will be provided 15 to 25 kg quality seed to promote informal seed system. •  About 20 farmers from selected villages in Andhra Pradesh will be linked to APSSDC or NSC for production of Foundation/Certified seed. •  Two Seed Producing Farmers’ Groups will be established in Karnataka and linked to KSSC and NSP of UAS-Raichur.
