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.
