Abstract
A total of 19 546 wheat samples was collected during 1976-84 from various areas in India. The percentage infection of different cultivars is tabulated. It is concluded that a major cause of the spread of karnal bunt, caused by Tilletia indica, in India is the cultivation of some high-yielding, but susceptible cultivars.
