Title : Screening of Mungbean [Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek] germplasm for Cercospora leaf spot resistance

Abstract :

Ninety mungbean [Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek] germplasm accessions were evaluated for resistance against leaf spot disease caused by Cercospora canescens under field conditions during rabi 2018 and rabi 2019. A disease rating scale of 1-5 was used for the evaluation of resistance of mungbean accessions. A considerable variation was found among the genotypes with respect to the disease reaction. Thirty-two accessions; were found resistant and thirty-five accessions were found to have moderately resistant reactions against the CLS disease. The rest of the accessions were either susceptible or moderately susceptible or highly susceptible. On the basis of present investigations, resistant and moderately resistant genotypes identified against CLS disease may be exploited in the breeding program aimed at the development of a high-level resistant variety of mungbean against Cercospora leaf spot.
