Abstract:

Screening of chickpea germplasm was carried out at Norman E. Borlaug Crop Research Centre, Pantnagar during winter season of 2017-18, with the objective of identifying the source of resistance to H. armigera. Observation recorded over a period of six weeks revealed that, the minimum mean egg (0.28 eggs/5 plants) and larval population (0.5 larvae/5 plants) were recorded on ICC372351. Minimum pod damage of 5.56 per cent was recorded on ICC372351, whereas the maximum grain yield of 1071.58 kg/ha was recorded on ICC3404. The germplasm viz. ICC4484 (3), ICC4260 (3), ICC244624 (3), ICC372351 (3) and ICC3089 (3) were rated as least susceptible based on pest susceptible rating.
