An ancient crop for the modern world
Chickpea grain is an excellent source of high-quality protein, with a wide range of essential amino acids. The crop also fixes relatively large amounts of atmospheric nitrogen.By focusing on early maturity and high yield, researchers are helping transform what was once a subsistence crop into an internationally traded commodity and source of income for rural communities.

6.7 million tons – The amount of chickpea produced worldwide in 2012.

95% – Developing countries’ share of global chickpea production.

100% – The increase in land under chickpea in Eastern and Southern Africa since 1980.

400% – Growth in chickpea area in West Asia over the past three decades.
