The experiments were conducted during 2009 and 2010 to find out the most effective screening techniques for identifying host plant resistance against chickpea collar rot caused by Sclerotim rolfsii in pot house. Out of four techniques employed, chickpea ‘grain inoculation techniques’ was found best. The minimum post emergence mortality (6.7%) occurred at 4.0 percent concentration of Pyraclostrobin which is significantly relatively less in comparison to control (26.8%) during the two consecutive year of testing.  Among 88 chickpea desi genotype GNG 1958 was found resistant to disease whereas , 13 entries viz., NDG 9-21, PG 97030, BG 3004, JG 14-11, H 04-68, PG 054, BGD 1058, GJG 0724, RSG 931, JG1307, GJG 0504, JG 14-110, H05-24 were moderately resistant. Among Kabuli types, two entries i.e GNG 1969, BG 2086 were resistant and 9 as moderately resistant (IPCK 2005-23, Phule G 0027, JGK 2003-304, IPCK 02, BG 3001, MNK 1, BG 3000,Vihar, HK 06-168).
