Abstract

Among the fifteen genotypes/cultivars of chickpea screened against H. armigera, BG-372,
HC-1, SAKI-9516, Vijay and Avrodhi were found comparatively less susceptible as they harboured
lower larval population (1.07 to 1.32 larvae/plant), also had lower damage to pods (11.41 to
14.16%) and higher grain yield (1375 kg/ha to 1187 kg/ha) than remaining cultivars. Further, the
cultivars, Dahod Yellow and BG-256 were also less susceptible and gave good grain yield even
though having high larval population (2.52 and 2.47 larvae/plant) and high pod damage (22.81
and 20.49%).
