  The mechanism of "seed to seedling infection" of blight disease caused by Ascochyta rabiei (Pass.) Lab., was studied while growing naturally infected chickpea seeds and healthy seeds artificially inoculated with pathogen inoculum. The disease symptoms appeared on young seedlings within a week after emerging from soil. The seedling infection was due to contact of growing point to the pathogen inoculum from infected seeds during the process of shoot differentiation under the ground. Based on the observations of disease symptoms on the seedlings from contaminated seeds, it is concluded that contamination of plumule with pathogen inoculum during germination appears to be a major mechanism by which the pathogen transmission occurs on aerial parts of the plants.
