Sources of resistance to root-knot nematodes in chickpea germplasm uri icon


  • Of 1000 chickpea genotypes screened for resistance to Meloidogyne incognita and M. javanica in pot experiments, 85 exhibited resistance or moderate resistance. On further testing, only 2 lines, ICC 4007 and ICC 4237, were identified as moderately resistant to M. incognita while ICC 4254 and ICC 4331 were moderately resistant to M. javanica. However, these genotypes were susceptible to a M. javanica race 1 population in a farmers field at Aziz Nagar, Ranga Reddy district, Andhra Pradesh
