Blight disease in chickpea is caused by a fungus that exists both in sexual (Didymella rabiei) and asexual stages (Ascochyta rabiei). Pathotype variability is necessary to select the appropriate pathotype for screening genotypes in resistance breeding programme. Differentiation of Ascochyta rabiei (AR) into 3 classes (pathotype I, IIand III) was reported in Syria and has been widely accepted and recently highly aggressive pathotype IV has been reported by Imtiaz et al.
