Micropropagation is one of the most widely used tissue culture techniques for rapid asexual in vitro propagation. Such techniques for grain legume crops have been rare but are of recent interest. Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) is a major food legume in many countries and is one of the most important pulse crops in the world. A technique was standardized to propagate chickpea and its wild relatives. A medium was developed to induce multiple shoots from excised shoot tips of 15-day-old aseptically raised seedlings and 30- day-old greenhouse-grown plants. Shoot-tip explants (2-8 cm long) of six chickpea genotypes (L 550, K 850, ICCC 32 (ICCV 6), ICC 12237, ICCC 42, and C 235) and four wild Cicer spp (C. bijugum No. 201, C. cuneatum SL 157, C. judaicum No. 185, and C. pinnatifidum. No. 188) were cultured under two light regimes...
