Kabuli Chickpea Release - PBA Magnus

AVS licenced the rights to PB Seeds for the release of new Kabuli Chickpea Variety, PBA Magnus.

PBA Magnus is a large-seeded Kabuli chickpea. It is adapted to the medium rainfall chickpea growing regions of south-eastern Australia, where large seed size can be obtained. In these regions, it has improved grain yields across all yield environments and larger grain compared to the current large-seeded variety Genesis™ Kalkee.

PBA Magnus is the highest yielding large sized kabuli chickpea in medium rainfall environments in kabuli growing areas of south-eastern Australia.
