Abstract

Genotypic differences exist in both pigeonpea and chickpea for tolerance to soil salinity, and in pigeonpea for tolerance to short-term waterlogging. Some progress has been made at ICRISAT in developing field and laboratory screening methods to detect these differences. Many advanced breeding lines and cultivars with tolerance to soil salinity and short-term waterlogging have been identified. To identify even better sources of tolerance to salinity and waterlogging, there is a need to screen a much wider ranger of genetic material for both crops.
