Abstract:

Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) also known as Bengal gram is one of the most important winter season pulse crop grown in India. It is a member of family fabaceae and believed to be originated in South West Asia. An in vitro study was carried out on effect of different temperatures, relative humidity and pH on growth of Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. cicer under laboratory of Department of Plant Pathology, S.K.N. College of Agriculture, Jobner. Results revealed that among the different temperatures (15, 20, 25, 30 and 35°C) and relative humidity (60, 70, 80, 90 and 100%), maximum mycelial growth and sporulation of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceri was observed at 30°C temperature with 80.95 mm. and at 100 per cent relative humidity with 90.00 mm mycelial growth. Whereas studies on effect of different levels of pH, maximum dry mycelial weight (260 mg) was recorded pH 7.0.
