The susceptibility of four genotypes of chickpea to four wild strains of Agrobacterium tumefaciens was evaluated. Successful transformation was dependent on specific bacterial strain-plant cultivar interactions. Agropine strain A281 was the most effective for tumor induction. Tumors displayed hormone autonomous growth, were opine positive and contained DNA that was homologous to the T-DNA of the inciting strain.
