Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) is one of the most important pulse crop grown all over India. Chickpea wilt caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceri is one of the major disease on chickpea in Northern Karnataka, which is soil and seed borne. Heavy inoculum in the soil and favorable environment condition results in the death of infected plant and therefore total yield loss. A random roving survey was carried out in major chickpea growing districts of Northern Karnataka, viz., Vijayapura, Bagalkote, Gadag and Kalburgi in 2017-18 to know the disease prevalence and its severity in various locations. Survey results revealed that Bagalkote district had high disease incidence with 27.19 per cent followed by Kalburgi district with 24.90 per cent.

Keywords: Chickpea wilt, Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceri
