Natural infection by mainly Luteovirises was investigated in chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) in chickpea growing areas of North Western (NW) provinces of Iran. During 2015 growing season, a total of 170 selected chickpea plants with general yellowing symptoms, including foliar bronzing and stunting, reddening of leaf margins, narrow leaves, and general growth reduction were screened for infection using tissue blot immunoassay (TIBA) and DAC- ELISA. On the basis of 170 plant samples tested, 129 were shown to be infected to at least 5 viruses. On descending order, number of infected sample positive to BLRV using specific poly and two different monoclonal antibodies were 44 (26%) samples, 75 (44%) by using Mab- B-2-5G4 and 89 (52%) with Mab 4-6G6 antibodies. SbDV was positive in 56 samples (33%), CpCSV   in 29 (17%), BWYV in 32 (19%), and 12 samples (7%) were shown to be infected by FBNYV (nanovirus) respectively. Luteoviruses  including  BLRV, CpCSV, SbDV, and  BWYV were the most prevalent viruses infecting chickpea plant in NW provinces of Iran.
