Abstract

Host plant resistance offers the most sustainable and effective disease management option to combat diseases in chickpea. In this chapter, we briefly describe the distribution, economic importance and symptoms of the most important diseases of chickpea including Ascochyta blight, Botrytis grey mould, Fusarium wilt, dry root rot, collar rot, black root rot and stem rot. Screening methods developed by different research institutes to select germplasm and breeding lines resistant against these diseases are reviewed. A variety of field, greenhouse, growth room and laboratory screening techniques along with disease rating scale to facilitate the identification of resistant breeding material are discussed in detail. Coloured illustrations for each technique are provided as well as extensive lists of available resistant sources against all diseases. For the selection of sources of resistance to various diseases in chickpea, and for breeding high yielding cultivars with improved levels of resistance, this chapter describes current techniques for the simultaneous screening of a large number of chickpea
plants.
