Anticipated Surge in Chickpea Production in Northern Argentina, Improved Soil Conditions Despite Smaller Sizes Predicted

Published Nov 17, 2023
The northern region of Argentina anticipates an increase in chickpea production compared to 2022, attributed to the removal of soybean crops due to drought, leaving the soil in improved condition. Despite a strong start with a robust legume structure, low rainfall resulted in smaller-sized chickpeas. While the overall volume and quality are favorable, a higher proportion of small-sized chickpeas is expected. Farmers project approximately 10% for 9 mm chickpeas, 30% for 8 mm chickpeas, and 60% for 7 mm chickpeas in the crop.
