Wood, Jennifer A., Knights, Edmund J., Campbell, Grant M. and Choct, Mingan (2014) Differences between easy-and difficult-to-mill chickpea (Cicer arietinumL.) genotypes. Part I: Broad chemical composition. Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, 94 (7). pp. 1437-1445. ISSN 0022-5142

Ease of milling is an important quality trait for chickpeas (Cicer arietinum L.) and involves two separate processes: removal of the seed coat and splitting of cotyledons. Four chickpea genotypes (two desi types, one kabuli type and one interspecific hybrid with ‘wild’ C. echinospermum parentage) of differing ease of milling were examined to identify associated seed composition differences in the seed coat, cotyledons and their junctions (abaxial and adaxial).
