Pulse crops are affected by several foliar and root diseases that severely limit production. Brief descriptions of common diseases of field pea, chickpea and lentils reported in North-Central US are mentioned in this section primarily to serve as a guide for preliminary disease diagnosis under field conditions. Efforts have been made to include pictures of all the common diseases wherever possible. Additionally, images of certain diseases occurring in the Pacific North-West have also been added to the gallery. Pictures will be added to this page as they become available and all pulse researchers are encouraged to contribute their pictures for addition to this page.
