Scientists are seeking to develop chickpeas that can flourish in dry climates, to help some of the world's poorest farmers reliably grow the staple crop.
Experts are to use low-cost imaging and computing science techniques to identify how to speed the breeding of chickpea varieties that give high yields in arid conditions.
Their research could enable farmers in Africa - where much of the population relies on poor smallholdings for subsistence - to improve chickpea harvests in a changing climate.
