Isolates from diseased Cicer arietinum from various states in northern India were grouped into 30 categories on the basis of visual observations. This was reduced to 9 groups on the basis of morphological and cultural characters. On the basis of sclerotial formation the isolates were divided into 3 groups and on the basis of sporulation and spore size, 5 groups. Based on reactions of 9 isolates on 9 differential hosts, 4 physiological races were identified. Race 510 was the most virulent, followed by 494 and 508, while 232 was the least virulent. C. judaicum was resistant to all these races
