Studies on the development of early leaf spot (ELS) (Cercospora arachidicola (Mycosphaerella arachidis)), late leaf spots (LLS) (Phaeoisariopsis and rust (Puccinia arachidis) diseases of groundnut (Arachis hypogaea) in relation to temperature were carried out under laboratory conditions using 3 groundnut genotypes of varying disease resistance. Results showed that rust, ELS and LLS initiation and development were more rapid on susceptible than on resistant genotypes.
