Abstract:
The field experiments on “Screening of chickpea germplasm against gram pod borer, Helicoverpa armigera Hubner” was conducted at Students’ Instructional Farm of C. S. Azad University of Agriculture & Technology, Kanpur during Rabi 2017-18 and 2018-19. Screening of fifty chickpea germplasm with one check variety KGD-1168 was carried out to evaluate for resistance to gram pod borer, H. armigera. Present study revealed during 48th SW till maturity i.e. 14th SW both years. The lowest larval population was recorded of 0.77, 0.71 larvae/m row in germplasm 425 and highest population with 6.72 and 6.01 larvae/m row in germplasm 471 and P-255, respectively. The minimum pod damage was recorded of 4.08 and 4.88 percent in germplasm 425 and W-48-75 and maximum i.e. 14.42 and 13.22 percent was recorded in germplasm 471, P-255, respectively. The insect pest susceptibility rating (PSR), declared that 7 and 8 germplasm were found highly susceptible, 26 and 26 were moderately susceptible and 16 and 15 least susceptible, respectively, both years.
