Abstract


Fifty lines of chickpea were tested against Fusarium Wilt (F. oxysporum f.sp. ciceri) in diseased plot, which was developed at Pulses Research Institute (PRI), Faisalabad. None of the advance lines was highly susceptible to Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. ciceri at seedling stage or at flowering stage. The level of resistance and susceptibility varied at both the growth stages. At seedling stage, out of fifty test lines, twenty five lines were found highly resistant. Eighteen lines were resistant and six lines were moderately resistant at seedling stage. At flowering stage only seven lines were highly resistant and sixteen lines were resistant. Fifteen lines exhibited a moderately resistance response and twelve lines fell into the susceptible category. Lines 09013, 09021, 09023, 09044, 09045, 08006, 08010 were highly resistant at both the growth stages, while only a single line 08029 was susceptible at seedling as well as flowering stage.
