Abstract:

Cultural and genetic diversity of Rhizoctonia bataticola causing dry root of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) crop were studied during 2018-19 at VNMKV, Parbhani. In present studies, isolate Rb-6 , exhibited maximum mycelial growth of (90.00mm), followed by Rb-9 (89.50mm) and Rb-2 (88.50mm) indicated a great cultural variability amongst R. bataticola isolates, whereas, in case of genetic variability when a dendrogram generated based on UPGMA analysis of RAPD data grouped all of the 9 test isolates (R. bataticola) into two major clusters. The cluster I included 6 isolates viz., Rb-1, Rb-2, Rb-3, Rb-4, Rb-5 and Rb-9 collected from the three zone of Marathwada region which showed 64.5 per cent genetic similarity. Cluster II comprised of only two isolates Rb-6 and Rb-7 with similarity coefficient of 85 per cent.
