Managing key biotic stresses

The combined effect of insect pests, diseases and weed infestations on grain legumes causes an estimated 37-70% of total yield losses. Negative impacts of biotic stresses are most damaging to chickpea, cowpea and pigeonpea.

In response, the Product Line 5 of the program improves the production performance of these 3 legumes most affected by biotic stresses.
