Donor: Government department -national- state or local,Department of Agriculture & Cooperation- Government of India-India
This project is based on successful outputs from two earlier projects on chickpea (funded by DAC) and pigeonpea (funded by USAID) which will translate genomic information to enhance genetic gains not only in research plots but also in farmersâ€™ fields. The project is expected to enhance integration between ICRISATs Genetic Gains Program and Asia Program as well as collaboration with NARS partners in India in addition to developing International Public Goods.
