Abstract:

Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) is one of the major pulses in human diet for essential source of inexpensive protein. Wilt disease is one of the major constraints in production of chickpea caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceri is widespread in chickpea growing areas resulting in considerable economic losses. A survey was conducted during the rabi season of 2014-2015 and 2015-16 to obtain information on the distribution and natural incidence of chickpea wilt in the Agro-ecological condition of undulating red and lateritic zone of West Bengal, India. A mean disease incidence was of ranging from 13.90% to 27.76% during both the years of surveyed. Comparison of the incidence level of wilt disease in three districts the pooled analysis indicated that the district Purulia had maximum level of disease incidence ranging from 21.45 to 27.76% followed by Bankura district 19.84 to 24.87%. Birbhum district was noticed with less incidence levels ranging from 13.90 to 23.85% during seasons under surveyed. It was evident from the investigation that the incidences of Fusarium wilt disease of chickpea varied with the location, variety and season. The study provided an elementary idea about the disease severity pattern in the zone.
