Screening pigeonpea varieties against leaf blight disease caused by alternaria tenuissima kunz ex pers



Screening pigeonpea varieties against leaf blight disease caused by alternaria tenuissima kunz ex pers



Indian Journal of Genetics & Plant Breeding 50(2): 171-174



A new leaf blight disease caused by Alternaria tenuissima is appearing in alarming proportions in the September-sown crop of pigeonpea in Norh Bihar. A diverse collection of 306 lines received from various sources was clearly screened along with susceptible controls against this disease in the field at Pusa during 1984-1987. Observations were recorded twice and the test material was graded in five groups based on percentage of plants showing infection. Varieties showing immunity or high degree of resistance against high disease have been identified.
