ABSTRACT
Maximum fecundity was found on genotype RVSSG-38. The adult emergence on different genotypes ranged from 7.0 to 18.0. Genotype RVSSG-44 recorded maximum percent loss in seed weight. Genotype RVSSG-43 had minimum percentage of seed infestation. Susceptibility index of pulse beetle on different genotypes of chickpea showed that there were no significant differences among different genotypes. Infestation percentage positively and significantly associated with protein content in fresh seed and infested seed. Seed size and seed shape of the genotypes did not influence the fecundity, adult emergence, total development period and susceptibility index of pulse beetle.

Key words : Callosobruchus chinensis , Chickpea, Cicer arietinum L., Plant extracts, Pulse beetle.
