Survey of dry root rot disease of chickpea in Marathwada region of Maharashtra
A field survey of chickpea dry root rot disease, covering three Agro-climatic zones viz., Scarcity Zone (SZ), Assured Rainfall Zone (ARZ) and Moderate Rainfall Zone (MRZ) of Marathwada region of the Maharashtra state was undertaken during the months of December to February, 2016-17 and 2017-18 to assess occurrence and distribution of chickpea dry root rot disease. The results of the present survey indicated that overall root rot disease incidence was comparatively higher during Rabi, 2017-18 season compared to Rabi, 2016-17. During Rabi, 2016-17 and 2017-18 maximum root rot incidence of 24.23 and 30.55 per cent, respectively, with maximum pooled mean incidence of 27.39 per cent in Scarcity zone, followed by Assured rainfall zone (22.17 %, 26.63 % and 24.4 %) and Moderate rainfall zone (16.18 %, 20.29 % and 18.23 %).
