Pulses are important source of protein, vitamin and minerals. They are rich in macro and micronutrients and are useful in sustainable crop system. They add to the nutritional security of the world. They are the best source of irradiating protein malnutrition. The major pulse grown countries are China, India, United States, Brazil, Australia, Canada, Ethiopia, Argentina, Myanmar and Mexico. India is the world largest producer and consumer of pulses. India is the worlds largest producer and consumer of pulses. They are grown in three seasons. Legumes are prone to several phytopathological diseases which limit the crop yield, reduce the quality of the produce, ultimately affecting the economy of the region. The pulses infected by approximately 100 fungal diseases all around the world. Among the fungal diseases vascular wilt caused by Fusarium is a major threat to the pulses grower, it is a seed and soil born disease. This review house the information on Fusarium, its species oxysporum and their formae speciales and strains parasitizing chickpea, pigeon pea, pea and lentil with pathogen taxonomy and nomenclature, history, distribution, morphology and culture characteristic, symptomatology, losses and management practices through agronomic practices, chemicals, plant extracts, biological agents, bio fumigations and nanotechnology applications.

Key words: Pulses, Wilt, Fusarium Oxysporum.
