Abstract: Chickpea dry root rot caused by Rhioctonia bataticola is the most destructive disease and causes severe losses in yield in Andhra Pradesh. Therefore the present investigation was under taken to screen different germplasm lines for their resistance to dry root rot. A field experiment was conducted for screening of chickpea germplasm lines (75) and L 550 (susceptible check) during rabi season of 2016-17. Out of 75 entries, 17 entries have found moderately resistant and 52 entries were susceptible whereas 6 entries were recorded as highly susceptible to dry root rot disease.
