Twelve chickpea cultivars grown in Turkey were assessed for susceptibility to wild-type Agrobacterium tumefaciens strains A281 and A136NC. Although all chickpea cultivars showed susceptibility to infection from both A. tumefaciens strains, Diyar-95, Flip 87-8, Ispanyol, Gökçe, Damla-89, and Aziziye-94 had higher frequencies of tumor formation from both strains than the other cultivars tested.
