Abstract

One hundred ninety-one chickpea lines comprising 40 desi (ICC) and 31 kabuli (ILC) germplasm accessions and 120 kabuli breeding (FLIP) lines were evaluated for Ascochyta blight resistance at 48 disease-endemic locations in 20 countries in the period 1983-1989. Though there was a considerable variation in the reaction of the lines across seasons and locations, 18 lines including ILC 72, ILC 182, ILC 201, ILC 202, ILC 2380, ILC 2956, ILC 3279, ILC 3868, ILC 3870, ILC 4421, FLIP 82-191C, FLIP 83-46C, FLIP 83-49C, FLIP 83-72C, FLIP 83-97C, FLIP 84-85C, FLIP 84-93C, and ICC 3932 showed resistance in 50% or more of the locations or tests in which they were evaluated. These results suggest at the kabuli germplasm has better resistance to Ascochyta blight than the desi germplasm. Based on the reaction of six common lines to blight, the 48 locations could be categorised into 13 groups.
