GJG 6: A high yielding wilt resistant chickpea variety for conserved moisture condition of Gujarat
A high yielding wilt resistant chickpea culture tested as GJG 1003 was a cross derivative of GJG 0105 x FG 711, matures in 110 to 112 days, with an average grain yield of 1867 kg/ha under rainfed condition of Gujarat and recorded high yield by 13.6 %, 21.9 % and 5.2 % over check varieties Gujarat Gram 1 (1643 kg/ha), Gujarat Gram 2 (1531 kg/ha) and Gujarat Junagadh Gram 3 (1775 kg/ha), respectively. It was notified and released in the name of GJG 6 ( Gujarat Junagadh Gram 6) during 2016. The GJG 6 variety is resistant to wilt and shown good level of resistance against stunt diseases and comparable pod borer damage. This variety has more protein content (19.9 %) and carbohydrate content (67.84 %) than the check varieties. The variety was released for cultivation under conserved soil moisture condition of Gujarat during 2016.
