Multilocational testing of chickpea for field resistance to Ascochyta blight uri icon

abstract

  • Chickpea lines identified as resistant to A. rabiei in field screening at Hisar (Haryana) were tested in blight-endemic areas in India and at Islamabad, Pakistan. Resistant lines were found at all test sites except Islamabad, where temperature and humidity were more congenial for disease development. This multilocational testing helped identify a few lines with stable resistance in India
