Field experiments on health state of chickpea
plants growing in southern Poland conditions were carried out in the years 2000-2002.
Field observations during vegetation indicated, that often various
specific disease symptoms occurring on chickpea plants were caused by the fungi
infesting plant tissues. Leaf, stems and pods spots, yellowing and drying of
whole plants and root rot and basal rot were dominant symptoms. The main
reasons of those disease symptoms were fungi from genus: Fusarium, Alternaria,
and Ascochyta and additionally Botrytis cinerea and Rhizoctonia solani.
