Abstract

Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) is one of the most important food legumes and India accounts for approximately 75% of world’s chickpea production. Despite the high total production, yields of chickpea are low due to many biotic and abiotic constraints. Among the biotic constraints more than 50 diseases have so far been reported on chickpea. Among them soil borne disease dry root rot caused by Rhizoctonia bataticola, is the major limiting factor in chickpea production. The survey on the incidence of dry root rot of chickpea was carried out to know the prevalence and distribution of the disease in eight districts of North Karnataka viz., Bidar, Kalaburgi, Yadgir, Raichur, Koppal, Ballari, Dharawad and Vijaypura representing chickpea growing rainfed situations during rabi, 2015-16.
