Abstract: Chickpea wilt caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceri is the most destructive and widespread fungal disease of chickpea. It has drastic effect on yield causing 100 per cent loss under favorable conditions. A severe outbreak of wilt of chickpea was observed causing considerable damage in the field of Ghed and Saurashtra regions of Gujarat during last few years. Experiment was conducted to find out effective fungicides for the management of chickpea wilt. Different fungicides were tested against Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceri viz., systemic, non-systemic and fungicide combination. In laboratory screening of different fungicide, Tebuconazole 25.9% EC was found to be quite effective in inhibiting the radial growth of test pathogen among systemic group of fungicides, while in non-systemic group of fungicides, Copper Oxychloride 50% WP and in case of fungicide combinations Carbendazim 12% + Mancozeb 63% WP were significantly inhibited the growth of test fungus. Fungicides found most effective under in vitro were further tested in greenhouse condition in pot culture. Among six fungicides tested, the combination of Carbendazim 12% + Mancozeb 63% WP showed minimum PDI followed by Carbendazim 50% WP.
