Abstract The resistance expressed by a range of chickpea cultivars to phytophthora root rot in glasshouse and field trials was examined. Van der Plank’s compound interest equation was the most suitable transformation for providing parameters to describe epidemic development for most of the cultivars when compared to the simple interest equation by plotting residuals and coefficients of determination. The area under the disease progress curve (AUDPC) was significantly correlated with the final disease incidence (FDI), which was also significantly correlated with the apparent infection rate (r), but r and AUDPC were not significantly correlated. The AUDPC proved to be relatively indiscriminate in this study for selecting resistant cultivars, since the value for the susceptible control cultivar was high, and many cultivars therefore had statistically lower AUDPC values. Several cultivars (i.e. CQ1591, ICC7568 and 232-4) were resistant on the basis of both the FDI and r parameters in the field trial and considered worthy of further investigation. When the parameters FDI or r were used to categorise the disease reactions of cultivars in the field, only half of the 30 cultivars assessed showed similar responses in both the glasshouse and field trials. The glasshouse assay used here does not allow the detection of all potentially useful forms of field resistance, and further work is needed in the development of a glasshouse assay which gives an accurate representation of field response to Phytophthora megasperma Drechs. f. sp. medicaginis Kuan and Erwin.
