Ambar grain is a desi type chickpea suitable for the whole and splitting human food markets. Seed size of Ambar similar to that of Genesis 836 but smaller than PBA Slasher. However, its seed coat colour is lighter than PBA Slasher. The seed size is very uniform and this coupled with seed colour make it attractive for marketing. Other quality attributes also compare well with current varieties.

Ambar is currently available and is being commercialised through Heritage Seeds.
