Seventy isolates of Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. ciceris (Foc) causing chickpea wilt representing 13 states and four crop cultivation zones of India were analysed for their virulence and genetic diversity. The isolates of the pathogen showed high variability in causing wilt incidence on a new set of differential cultivars of chickpea, namely C104, JG74, CPS1, BG212, WR315, KWR108, GPF2, DCP92-3, Chaffa and JG62. New differential cultivars for each race were identified, and based on differential responses, the isolates were characterized into eight races of the pathogen. The same set of isolates was used for molecular characterization with four different molecular markers, namely random amplified polymorphic DNA, universal rice primers, simple sequence repeats and intersimple sequence repeats. All the four sets of markers gave 100% polymorphism. Unweighted paired group method with arithmetic average analysis grouped the isolates into eight categories at genetic similarities ranging from 37 to 40%. The molecular groups partially corresponded to the states of origin/chickpea-growing region of the isolates as well as races of the pathogen characterized in this study. ...
