Chickpea Production in the High Plains

Abstract: Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) is an annual grain legume or “pulse crop” that is used extensively for human consumption. The seed of this plant,
when dried, is commonly used in soup. Its primary use in the United States is for salad bars, while in the Middle East and India it is more frequently cooked and blended
with rice dishes. Major chickpea producers include India, Pakistan, Mexico, Turkey, Canada, and Australia. Chickpea makes up more than 20 percent of world pulse
production, behind dry bean and pea. Currently, the United States imports more than 80 percent of its domestic chickpea needs.
