MAIN ADVANTAGES PBA Boundary A represents a further improvement in Ascochyta blight resistance for desi chickpea varieties suited to Northern NSW and Southern Qld. It is broadly adapted to this region and has shown a consistent and significant yield advantage over recently released varieties. PBA Boundary A has similar plant and seed type characteristics to PBA HatTrick A and Jimbour A . SEED PROTECTION & ROYALTIES PBA Boundary A is protected under Plant Breeder’s Rights (PBR) legislation. Growers can only retain seed from their production of PBA Boundary A for their own seed use. An End Point Royalty (EPR) of $4.40 per tonne (GST inclusive), which includes breeder royalties, applies upon delivery of this variety. Seed is available from the commercial partner Seednet.

4. Better pulse varieties faster SEED QUALITY PBA Boundary A is a standard ‘Indian’ type desi chickpea and has been assessed as suitable for both splitting and direct consumption use by traders in India and the Middle East. It is almost identical in size, shape and colour to PBA HatTrick A and differs from Jimbour A mainly in having a slightly darker seed coat. PBA Boundary A has excellent milling quality, as measured by dhal yield (%) and is better than most other varieties (except PBA HatTrick A ) commonly grown in north-eastern Australia. The dhal is similar in shape and size to that of Jimbour A and has the distinct dimpling required by Indian markets to differentiate it from field pea dhal. Dhal colour of PBA Boundary A is very similar to that of other varieties. BREEDING PBA Boundary A (evaluated as CICA0511) was developed by the PBA chickpea program, led by NSW-DPI from a cross between Jimbour A and the Ascochyta resistant Iranian landrace ICC3996. PATHOLOGY Disease management information has been compiled from experiments conducted by NSW-DPI through the GRDC project DAN00110 ‘More Profitable Chickpeas through Disease Management and Disease Screening - Northern Region’ and by DEEDI through the GRDC project DAQ00154 ‘Northern Integrated Disease Management’. PBA is an unincorporated joint venture between the GRDC, University of Adelaide, SARDI, DPI Victoria, NSW-DPI, DEEDI, DAFWA and Pulse Australia. It aims to deliver better pulse varieties faster.

3. PULSE BREEDING AUSTRALIA Virus z PBA Boundary A is rated as Moderately Susceptible (MS) to the suite of viruses, similar to other regional varieties. z A large number of viruses can affect chickpea, however the incidence of disease affected plants is normally low in most districts and years. The main exception has been the Liverpool Plains district of NSW where significant infection levels (and yield losses) have frequently been observed. z Retention of cereal stubble, timely sowing and establishment of the recommended plant population (see below) provide the most effective management in virus-prone districts such as the Liverpool Plains. z There is no evidence to support the use of seed or foliar insecticides to reduce losses caused by viruses in chickpea. AGRONOMY Plant characteristics PBA Boundary A is similar in general appearance and maturity to PBA HatTrick A and their common parent Jimbour A . It is slightly but significantly taller (1-7 cm) than other regional desi varieties and pods are held well above the ground which assists harvest. PBA Boundary A has exhibited a slightly higher tendency to lodge than Jimbour A in high yielding situations, however this is not considered a significant problem. It flowers slightly later than PBA HatTrick A but has the same harvest maturity. Sowi n g z Target the optimum planting window for your area, but avoid very early sowing (to minimise the risk of lodging). z Sow high quality seed at rates calculated to achieve a plant population of 25-30 plants/m 2 . Typically this is 50 to 65 kg/ha, depending upon germination percentage and planting conditions. z Inoculate with Group N Chickpea Rhizobium. T olerance of physical stresses z Moderately intolerant of salt, but slightly less intolerant than PBA HatTrick A , Flipper A and Jimbour A . z PBA Boundary A has not shown any sensitivity to a range of recommended pre and post-emergent herbicides when applied according to label directions. z There is no evidence of increased sensitivity to frost compared to other desi chickpea varieties. DISEASE MANAGEMENT Ascochyta blight (AB) Follow the general guidelines for reducing the risk of Ascochyta blight in ‘Winter Crop Variety Sowing Guide’ from NSW-DPI or ‘Chickpea: Ascochyta Blight Management’ from Pulse Australia z Resul ts from yield loss trials and screening nurseries demonstrate that PBA Boundary A is significantly more resistant to Ascochyta than PBA HatTrick A . z The Resistant/Moderately Resistant (R/MR) Ascochyta rating means that, for the targeted region of Northern NSW and Southern Qld, disease development will normally be very slow and there will be no or minimal yield loss in most seasons. z In most seasons ther e is no cost benefit in applying a fungicide before Ascochyta is detected. z However, in seasons of high disease pressure, a reactive foliar fungicide spray strategy may be warranted and at least one pod protection spray is likely to be required. z Monitor the crop 10 – 14 days after each rain event and if Ascochyta is detected, consult your agronomist. Phytoph thora root rot (PRR) z PBA Boundary A is rated as Moderately Susceptible (MS) to Phytophthora (similar to Flipper A ), based on results from PRR screening nurseries. z Avoid paddocks that have either a: 1. history of PRR in chickpea, irrespective of when chickpea was last grown, or 2. likelihood of prolonged waterlogging following heavy rain. Botr ytis grey mould (BGM) z Controlled environment testing, confirmed by opportunistic field testing in 2010, indicates that PBA Boundary A is Susceptible (S) to BGM, broadly similar to all other regional desi varieties, except for Jimbour A which is rated Moderately Susceptible (MS). z Monitor for BGM in spring as temperatures and humidity rise. Apply a registered fungicide containing either carbendazim or mancozeb once BGM has been identified within the crop.

2. PULSE BREEDING AUSTRALIA An increased Ascochyta resistance, coupled with a tall, erect plant type means that it can also be grown in Southern NSW. A reduced resistance to Phytophthora root rot means that PBA Boundary A should not be grown in paddocks known to have a history of this disease or which are prone to waterlogging. PBA Boundary A is not recommended for Central Qld where yields are lower than currently recommended varieties. YIELD & ADAPTATION PBA Boundary A is well adapted to those areas of Region 2 (Central/ North-Western Slopes of NSW and Darling Downs of Qld) and Region 3 (Central/North-Western Plains of NSW and Western Downs/ Maranoa of Qld) where chickpeas are currently grown. PBA Boundary A has a major yield advantage over existing varieties in both wetter (Region 2) and drier (Region 3) parts of the Northern Region.
