Abstract:
Chickpeas are a popular pulse crop grown in nearly every part of the world, including temperate and sub-tropical climates. India is the world's largest producer of chickpeas, accounting for nearly 64% of global production. Dry root rot, caused by Rhizoctonia bataticola (TAUB) Butler, is one of the most devastating and widespread fungal diseases affecting chickpeas, with average yield losses of 05-50 percent. With the economic importance of chickpea and the losses caused by dry root rot disease in view, the current study was conducted to compare the performance of screening techniques against R. bataticola induced chickpea dry root rot. An experiment conducted in the net house found that the soil inoculation method had the highest seedling mortality, followed by the seed soaking method, and the root dip technique had the lowest seedling mortality, followed by the towel paper method. Statistical the soil inoculation method and seed soaking method were found at par with each other.
