The agronomy of growing Ambar is similar to all current Australian chickpea varieties.
Ambar has the following agronomic characteristics:
- Ambar is the earliest flowering and earliest maturing variety of the current varieties in southern Australia.
- Similar plant height to PBA Slasher.
- Like PBA Slasher, Ambar is a short, bushy semi-prostrate plant type.
- Lodging has not been seen in any trials in WA including trails where Ambar has yielded more than four tonnes per hectare (t/ha).
- Ambar has robust resistance to ascochyta blight as found over several years of testing in WA and in variable environment is India and New South Wales.
