This paper evaluates grain yield potential of chickpea varieties under dryland conditions across Montana. Despite well above average moisture in April, drought-like conditions returned in June and July. Grasshopper damage, which consisted of cutting of peduncles and the loss of pods (fell to the ground) resulted in significant grain yield losses in the late maturing kabuli-type chickpeas.
