Abstract:

Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) is one of the important rabi pulse crop grown in Marathwada region of Maharashtra state. Among various diseases, wilt caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceri is major devastated disease of chickpea causing losses to the tune of 100 per cent in severe condition. Survey was conducted and chickpea wilt disease incidence were recorded during, the rabi seasons of 2018-19 and 2019-20, covering 150 and 162 chickpea fields, respectively from 51tahsils under 08 districts, which are distributed under three agro-climatic zones viz., scarcity zone, assured Rainfall Zone and moderately high rainfall zone of the Marathwada region of Maharashtra state. In the two cropping season the mean incidence of chickpea wilt was recorded in each district and it was found maximum in Hingoli district (33.06%), followed by Nanded (29.24 %), Beed (27.90 %), Latur (25.12 %), Aurangabad (24.41 %), Parbhani (23.17 %) and Jalna (22.20 %) districts of Marathwada region,whereas, the minimum disease incidence was recorded in the Osmanabad (21.50 %) district. Present study showed that chickpea wilt is highly distributed in all the surveyed areas of Marathwada region of Maharashtra state. Variety wise incidence were recorded in Marathwada region where the average mean incidence was more on local cultivar (46.50 %) followed by BDN 9-3 (35.34 %). However, the minimum incidence of chickpea wilt was recorded on variety Rajvijay 202 and Rajvijay 203.
