Chickpea is one of the most vulnerable crop to attack of pests and diseases causing huge production losses. Among the diseases, chickpea wilt poses a severe problem in rainfed areas of Jammu region. It was observed that chickpea seeds treated with Trichoderma viride (soil application) recorded 21.50% wilt incidence followed by Trichoderma viride (seed application) 35.25%, neem seed cake 47.00%, Carbendazim 48.90%, Thiram 50.14% and Captan 56.50%. While Trichoderma viride (soil application) gave 78.50% (highest) wilt disease control, followed by Trichoderma viride (seed application) 64.75%, neem seed cake 53.00%, Carbendazim 51.10%, Thiram 49.86%, Captan 43.50% and least in check. Recommendations of the results were repeated in the 4 farmers field in Reasi district, disease incidence were 25.40% but after applying of Trichoderma viride (soil application) diseases incidence reduced to 7.95% only and it was reduced to 6.75% (Table 2). While yield of chick pea was enhanced from 5.25 to 9.20 q/ha and maximum 9.80 q/ha against least farmers’ practices i.e. 5.25% only.
