Studies were undertaken for the reaction of some pigeonpea cultivars against Heterodera cajani, Fusarium udum and wilt complex (H. cajani + F. udum). Out of twelve pigeonpea varieties tested against H. cajani, eight varieties viz. Asha, Bennur local, BSMR-736, Chaple, GRG-811, Maruti, Pink variety and WRP-1 were found to be moderately resistant (MR), three varieties viz., Gulyal local, Katti beeja and TS-3R were found to be susceptible (S) and GS-1 variety was highly susceptible (HS). The pigeonpea varieties tested against F. udum, three varieties found resistant (R) (GRG-811, TS-3R and WRP-1), three varieties found moderately resistant (MR) (Asha, BSMR-736 and Maruti) and remaining varieties found susceptible (S) (Bennur local, Chaple, Gulyal local, Katti beeja, Pink variety and GS-1). Whereas, all the varieties were found susceptible to H. cajani and F. udum wilt complex condition.

Key words: Heterodera cajani, Fusarium udum, Wilt complex, Screening, Pigeonpea.
