Downy mildew reactions of pearl millet pennisetum americanum lines with and without cytoplasmic male sterility



Downy mildew reactions of pearl millet pennisetum americanum lines with and without cytoplasmic male sterility



Plant Disease 67(6): 663-665



A total of 2976 breeding progenies of pearl millet (P. americanum) from 4 different sources possessig male-sterile and normal cytoplasm of the A1 sterile system were evaluated for susceptibility to downy mildew (caused by Sclerospora graminicola) employing an effective field-screening technique. Lines carrying male-sterile cytoplasm were not more susceptible than those with normal cytoplasm, indicating that in pearl millet the A1 male-sterile cytoplasm is not involved in determining susceptibility to downy mildew.
