The study was carried out at Pulse Section, Agriculture Research Institute, Tandojam, during Rabi season 2016. The highest infestation of aphid was observed in 3rd week of Jan. on C-612 (21.66) per plant followed by Sanyasi (6.66), DG-92 (6.00) and DG-89 (5.66). Similarly minimum infestation of aphid was observed during last week of Nov. on Sanyasi variety (2.00) followed by DG-92 (2.33), DG-89 (2.33) and C-612 (3.00). The data further showed the overall mean population of aphid on chickpea varieties i.e., C-612 (9.99 ± 6.31) followed by DG-92 (4.15 ± 1.06), DG-89 (3.92 ± 1.08) and Sanyasi (3.88 ± 1.25). There was significant difference (p<0.05) in population fluctuation of aphid on different chickpea varieties and observation dates. Maximum aphid population (9.91) was recorded on 3rd week of Jan., whereas minimum aphid population (2.64) was observed on last week of Nov. 2016. The aphid population significantly (p<0.05) higher on C-612 chickpea variety compared to DG-92 and DG-89 varieties and lowest aphid population was noted on Sanyasi variety.
