Chickpea dry root rot is caused by Rhizoctonia bataticola is the most destructive disease and causes severe losses in yield. Therefore, the present investigation were undertaken to screen different genotypes for their resistance to dry root rot. One hundred twenty seven chickpea genotypes were evaluated for locating new and better sources of resistance against dry root rot through disease sick fields at IGKV, Raipur during 2012 to 2013. Desi III only one entry was found moderately resistant (BG 3033), while three entries NDG 11-12, RKG 2020 22 and H 09-90 were tolerant. Whereas, in rainfed (R.F. II) sets of entries, Phule G 0752 was exhibited moderately resistant and JG 33 and CSJ 741 were tolerant. Three entries namely, RSG 9056, JG 16 and CSJ 8023 were found tolerant in elites lines. 100 per cent mortality was observed in the susceptible check (L-550) indicating the high and uniform sickness in the soil. The genotypes identified as resistant are of great value and may be exploited in breeding programme for developing high yielding resistant varieties.
