Reaction of 13 maize genotypes to Exserohilum turcicum in different agro-ecological zones of Uganda



Reaction of 13 maize genotypes to Exserohilum turcicum in different agro-ecological zones of Uganda



East African Agricultural and Forestry Journal 59(3): 213-218



Reactions of 13 maize cultivars to natural inoculum of E. turcicum were studied in 4 locations of Uganda representing a range of natural disease intensities. Percentage leaf area blighted and the number of lesions/leaf were assessed at the same growth stages (GS 8-9.3) in the 4 locations. Across the locations, Babungo 3 and Population 42 were the most resistant genotypes while the inbred line B73 was the most susceptible.
