Abstract: Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) is one of the most important pulse crops in India. The crop is grown in Western Maharashtra mainly in Rabbi Season. The soil born plant pathogens severely attack on the pulse crops, in which chickpea is severely attacked by Sclerocium rolfsii (S. rolfsii) of Chickpea pathogen. Organic amendments, such as neem, soybean, castor, safflower, groundnut cakes and vermicompost, compost, FYM, gypsum, poultry manure were applied to chickpea, which was reducing the survival and incidence of S. rolfsii. Among above amendments reduced pathogen population. The lowest S.rolfsii population was observed in neem cake treatment (4 x 10-3 /g) followed by cotton cake (6 x 10-3 /g) and castor cake (7.5 x 10-3 /g) as compared to control (25.5x 10-3 /g) at 15g/kg soil application. Among organic treatments significanty least incidence of Sclerocium rot was observed in neem cake treatment (5-15%) followed by compost (10-15%) at different growth stages as compared to control (45%). Safflower cake (15-35%) and soybean cake (15-30%) showed least adverse effect over incidence Sclerocium rot of chickpea.
