Abstract

Fusarium wilt and Ascochyta blight induced, respectively, by Fusarium oxysporum Schlechtemend. Snyd. & Hans. f. sp. ciceri(Padwick) Matuo & Sato,and Ascochyta rabiei (Pass.) Labrousse (teleomorph Mycosphaerella rabiei Kovachevski) are the most important diseases of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) throughout the world and particularly in the Indian subcontinent and the Mediterranean basin (Haware, 1990; Jiménez-Diaz et al., 1989b; Nene and Reddy, 1987). The most practical and cost-efficient method for control of both diseases is the use of resistant cultivars (Nene and Reddy, 1987). Accordingly, improving chickpea for resistance to Fusarium wilt and Ascochyta blight has been one of the main short-term objectives in chickpea breeding programmes (Singh, 1987; Van Rheenen et al., 1989). This paper presents an overview of progress made in the development of kabuli chickpea germplasm with resistance to Fusarium wilt.
