বিস্তারিত :Climate change is a major problem for maintaining stability of potential yield of pulses. What kind of research activities are going to cope with this situation.
Global climate is gradually changing, particularly the trend of increasing ambient temperature which has been contributing to outbreak of diseases. Some minor diseases and insects are becoming major causing epidemic situation. Changing of relative humidity and temperature also may increase and decrease the severity of different diseases of pulse crops. Research program has taken to develop short duration, heat and drought tolerant, photo and thermo insensitive varieties having potential for withstanding the long range of climatic variations and weather factors.
