India is the largest producer and consumer of chickpea, contributing an elephant share (65 per cent) towards the global chickpea production. However, in recent past the changing climate has lead to the emergence of Dry root rot (DRR) disease in chickpea growing areas, which frequently encounters a prolonged dry spells coupled with high temperature. The disease is posing serious threat to chickpea cultivation by pronounced effect of devastation in susceptible cultivars. To combat this disease, identification of resistant cultivars would be pre-requisite. Thus our study was focused on isolating the DRR pathogen Rhizoctonia bataticola from infected chickpea plots of Kalyana Karnataka region and its morphological characterization followed by screening the identified pathogen to validate the genotypes conferring resistant/tolerance to DRR. A total of nine genotypes were screened by using paper towel method. JSC-37 showed resistant reaction to DRR (which is a nation check and donor for the DRR by IIPR Kanpur). Followed by genotypes MABC-WR-SA-1, A-1 and JG-11 showed moderate resistant/ tolerant reaction.
