Root Lesion Nematode (RLN; Pratylenchus thornei Sher and Allen) is threatens chickpea production, either alone or in presence of R. bataticola. The effects of inoculation of eight chickpea genotypes with P. thornei alone or with joint inoculation with R. bataticola were investigated in a pot experiment. The populations developed on roots were inoculated @ 1000 P. thornei/genotype with four treatments. Nematode alone, Nematode + DRR fungus, DRR alone and untreated along with RLN were replicated five times. During the course of investigation, the extent of damages developed by RLN and DRR individually as well as their combinations was recorded. The study revealed, above the three times rate of reproduction due to P. thornei was noticed in JG 62 over the ICCV2, suggested that JG 62 is more vulnerable to RLN as well as DRR, while the ICCV 2 showed resistance.

Key words: RLN, DRR, Fresh root weight, Fresh shoot weight and Plant height.
