Abstract:
During the 2021-2022 rabi cropping season, a survey was undertaken to gather data on the prevalence and spread of chickpea diseases in relation to factors such as soil type, cultivated variety, and seed treatment in central and southern regions of India. The majority of farmers (28% - 49%) relied on local cultivars, while 68% employed seed treatment with fungicide. Diseases like Fusarium wilt, dry root rot, and collar rot were identified across all sites, with their occurrence ranging from 5.5% to 20%, 2% to 30%, and 1% to 9%, respectively, regardless of cultivar and location. The study also noted the presence of black root rot disease in the surveyed states. These findings highlight the widespread prevalence of dry root rot and collar rot, in addition to Fusarium wilt, among chickpea crops in the southern regions of India. As such, it is imperative to explore potential management strategies to address this issue.
