Recent research has shown that in and around Syria, winter-sown chickpea substantially outyields the spring-sown crops. It is expected that there will be a substantial adoption of this practice in farmers' fields in the near future. Any substantial change in the sowing date of a crop that is already well established in a traditional cropping system can bring about some changes in pest incidence, not only on that crop but alsoon other crops in the system. Although it is probable that winter.sown chickpea will suffer no greatcr pest attack than the spring-sown, it is possible that the introduction of a winter-sown crop might provide an earlier buildup of pests that will then disperse lo subsequent $pringsown crops including chickpea. Alternatively, a relatively unimporlant insect might become important either on the winter or succeeding crop, and so cause problems for the farmers.
