Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceri is one of the most destructive pathogen, causing wilt disease in chickpea and thereby inflicting account table quantitative as well as qualitative losses. Under natural epiphytotic conditions (Rabi 2013-2014), all the 50 chickpea entries exhibited different reactions against Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceri. However, six test entries were found highly resistant (Vishal, BCP-10, BCP-21, BCP-49, BCP-60 and BCP-61), thirty one were resistant, eight were moderately resistant (BDNG 9-3, BDNG-2003-1, JAKI- 9218, BDNG-2010-1, BDNG- 801, AKG-12009, PKV Kabuli-2 and BCPK-3), two were moderately susceptible (PKV Kabuli-4 and Virat) and three were highly susceptible (JG-62, BDNGK-807 and AKG-1207). In the Rabi 2014-2015, a total 48 entries exhibited different reactions against Fusarium wilt of chickpea. Single test entry was found highly resistant (PG-8108), twenty one were resistant, eight were moderately resistant, ten were moderately susceptible (AKG-1306, BDNG-801, Jaki-9218, BDNG K-799, PKV Kabuli-4, BDNG-798, Krupa, PG-12310, PG-12138 and PG-0611-14), five were susceptible (AKG-1103, B.D.N. 9-3, BDNG-K-807, AKG-1208 K and PKV Kabuli-2) and three were highly susceptible (JG-62, BDNG-804 and BDNG-2013-2).
