‘ICEAP 00040’ [Cajanus cajan (L.) Millsp.] (Reg. no. CV-255, PI 639265) was developed by the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) and released in 2003 in two countries (Malawi and Tanzania) in eastern and southern Africa (ESA). In Malawi, ICEAP 00040 was released as ‘Kachangu’ jointly by three agencies, namely, ICRISAT-Nairobi (ESA), Department of Agricultural Research Services (Ministry of Agriculture, Malawi), and Legumes Fibers and Oilseeds (Ministry of Agriculture, Malawi). In Tanzania, ICEAP 00040 was released as ‘Mali’ by ICRISAT-Nairobi (ESA) and Ilonga Agricultural Research Institute (Ministry of Agriculture, Tanzania). ICEAP 00040 is a late-maturing pigeonpea cultivar released for its resistance to the fungal pathogen Fusarium udum Butler (the causal agent of Fusarium wilt), and has potential use in the cropping systems of the semiarid ESA region and as a source of germplasm for pigeonpea improvement programs.
