ABSTRACT

A set of most released 46 chickpea accessions maintained in the collection of the Legume's Genebank of the Agrarian University of Georgia (AUG) was regenerated using advance growing technology of seed pilling and nano herbicides. For AUG grain legumes are mandatory crops in the frame of country regulations. The level of genetic diversity and the affectivity of new germplasm acquisition for the collection enrichment were evaluated. All of them, safety duplicated 6 years ago, needed regular regeneration for future breeding works, as well as for sending to genebanks of our collaborators and breeder in abroad in accordance with international agreements. A new material was obtained from all the accessions special pilot plots of chickpea. Recently acquired new germplasm contributed all of new entire collection, i.e. almost 100% of collected diversity originated from the recently obtained accessions. Remarkable is also, that all accession carries a unique germination, not present in the remaining collection. Field and lab analysis revealed the importance of collecting missions for the enrichment of collections of genetic resources. They will be used locally and sent to international scientific institutions.
