Differences in time of wilting of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) in response to Race 1 of Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. ciceris, are confirmed. C-104 wilts later than JG-62 and the difference in time of wilting appears to be inherited as a single gene with early wilting partially dominant to late wilting. Considered in relation to earlier studies, the observations indicate that at least two genes are involved in the inheritance of resistance in chickpea to Race 1 and offer an explanation for previous difficulties in interpreting the inheritance of resistance.
