Contact our curators Dr. Necrotic flecks produced during the initial stages of disease development, as well as restriction of the growth of A.

Additional information and current labels can be found at http: At present, it is not clear whether the reported resistance genes represent the same or different loci because allelic tests were not performed Winter et al. The genetics of resistance to ascochyta blight has been extensively analysed because the disease is of great agronomic and economic importance.

Longman Publisher, London, pp: This page was last modified Copper amine oxidase expression in defense responses to wounding and Ascochyta rabiei invasion. Superiority of winter sowing over traditional spring sowing of chickpea in the mediterranean region. Domestication of Plants in the Old World. Infection ascchyta of Cicer arietinum L.

On stems and petioles, the lesions expand and girdle. Secondary infection occurs when pycnidia produce more conidia during the ascocnyta season that are again dispersed by rainsplash and spread to new leaves for infection. Abstract In the Mediterranean region, chickpea yield could be increased by shifting the sowing date from spring to winter. Among the ascohcyta stresses, drought is almost ubiquitous to major chickpea growing regions and is exacerbated by heat stress in warmer Mediterranean and summer dominant rainfall areas Berger and Turner, Mapping a major gene for growth habit and QTLs for ascochyta blight resistance and flowering time in a population between chickpea and Cicer reticulatum.

Disease Resistance in Chickpea, Singh, K. ascocbyta

Two methods were used to assess disease severity 14 days after inoculation. Another bottleneck for mapping of ascochyta resistance genes is that, in many chickpea growing areas, several patho- and genotypes of the fungus may coexist in the same field or even in the same lesion Peever et al.

Furthermore, chickpea is an additional benefit to the farmers as it fixes a substantial amount of nitrogen for the subsequent crops and adds much needed organic matter that improves soil health, long-term fertility and sustainability of the ecosystems Ahmad et al.
