Biotic and abiotic stresses constraining productivity of cool season food legumes in Asia, Africa and Oceania


, : Biotic and abiotic stresses constraining productivity of cool season food legumes in Asia, Africa and Oceania. Expanding the production and use of cool season food legumes Proceedings of the Second International Food Legume Research Conference on pea, lentil, faba bean, chickpea, and grasspea, Cairo, Egypt, 12-16 April 1992: 175-194

The most important biotic and abiotic stresses faced by chickpea, lentil, pea, faba bean and grasspea in their major production regions in Asia, Africa and Oceania, are reviewed. Foliar diseases rank highest overall as major contributors to yield loss, whereas root diseases tend to assume greater importance at lower latitudes. Despite the obvious signs of damage caused by various insect pests, their impact on yield is less.
