Abstract: Chickpea wilt caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceri is the most destructive and widespread fungal disease of chickpea. It causes 100 per cent loss under favorable conditions. Nowadays chickpea wilt observed moderate to severe form in major chickpea growing areas in Western Maharashtra. This experiment was conducted to find out effective fungicides for the management of chickpea wilt. Different eleven fungicides were tested in vitro against Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceri in laboratory. Among these fungicides tested carbendazim and tricyclazole were found to be highly effective in completely (100%) inhibiting the growth of the fungus and least growth inhibition was recorded in Bordeaux mixture (41.16%).
