The global productivity of chickpea has shown an upward trend in the last two decades, but at 0.8 t ha·1 it continues to be rather low, and far below the potential (5 t ha-1) or actually realized yields at research stations and farmer managed on-farm trials (2.5 to 3.5 t ha·1). The chickpea demand in 2010 is estimated at 11.1 million t, up from 8.2 million tin 2001-02, an increase of 35%. Approximately 85% of the additional demand would come from India alone. A combination of yield increase and area expansion would be possible options in meeting projected demands
