Additional Information



The formal collaboration for chickpea improvement between Bangladesh and ICRISAT was initiated in 1975. Two joint teams of scientists from Bangladesh and ICRISAT collected 170 local germplasm lines in Bangladesh in 1979 and 1985. International chickpea trials and nurseries have been conducted in Bangladesh since 1975. Scientists and administrators from both sides have made frequent visits to Bangladesh and ICRISAT. ICRISAT collaborates with scientists at the Banladesh Agricultural Research Institute ( BARI ), Joydebpur and Bangladesh Agricultural University (BAU) and Bangladesh Institute of Nuclear Agriculture (BINA), Mymensingh. The collaboration has resulted in the release of a chickpea cultivar 'Nabin' in 1987. A number of other promising lines have been identified and are likely to be released. Asian Grain Legumes Network (AGLN) supports increased cooperative activities through in-country coordinator in Bangladesh. Tour and consultancy reports of various scientists to Bangladesh during 1980-90 are also included
