Evaluation of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) against pod borer (Helicoverpa armigera)

Published on

Thirty eight early maturing and promising chickpea (C/eer
ar/et/num L.), genotypes were evaluated at CSK, HPKV,
Regional Research Station, Dhaulakuan under early (Env
I & III) and late sown (Env II & IV) conditions during the
year 1997-98 and 1998-99 against pod borer (Helleoverpa
arm/gera). It was observed that both environments I & II
of year 1997-98 were favourable for pod borer infestation.
Pod borer Infestation was more severe under late sown
conditions as was evidenced by higher grand mean of
40.22 and 17.49% in Env. II and IV, respectively as
compared to 35.29 and 11.06% in early sown crop i.e. in
Env. I and III. Erect type genotype 405#4 was highly
resistant In all the four environments, whereas genotypes
ICCV 88102, ICCV 88202, ICCV 90201, ICCV 88506, ICCV
910257 II and 910257 III have shown resistance to pod
borer in two or three environments. The earliest maturing
genotype, ICCV 2 was highly resistant under early sown
conditions and moderately resistant under late sown
