Since yield is the most crucial trait to breeders, most QTLs for drought tolerance in wheat have been determined through yield and yield related measurements under water-limited conditions [64-68].
Secondgeneration GM crops, with a much wider range of traits, are now under development, including more farmer and consumer-relevant traits such as improved food quality, drought tolerance and disease resistance.
Drought tolerance is therefore the main objective in most chickpea breeding programs.

It has good drought tolerance, single flowers attract beneficial insects and the roots are thought to repel root attacking nematodes making it a good companion for your veg patch.
One of the traits, C4029, may increase yield as well as confer drought tolerance to crops.
It has good drought tolerance so it did well in this long hot summer.
This may be compromised by genetically improved drought tolerance coupled with yield increase.
