Races of Fusarium oxysporum causing wilt in chickpea: biochemical variability

DESAI SUSEELENDRA1*, Y. L. NENE1, R. JAMBUNATHAN1 and A. G. RAMACHANDRA REDDY2

Abstract


Four physiologic races of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceri (Foc), which cause wilt of chickpea (Cicer arietinum], differed significantly in their total sugars, proteins and amino acids. Total sugars were maximum in race 3 (93.3 ppm) and minimum in race 1 (23.2 ppm). Noticeable differences were recorded among the four races in their total protein content. When analysed for amino acids, race 3 showed less quantities of arginine (2.9 g), glycine (2.8 g), histidine (2.1 g), and methionine (0.7 g) 100g-1 protein than the other three races.
