Screening of pigeonpea genotypes for Fusarium wilt
Thirty nine entries from IVT and AVT genotypes of pigeonpea were screened against wilt disease, among which nine genotypes viz., JSA 59, IPA 17F, ARCCV2, PT 00012, JSA11, LRG 50, VKT 244, JSA34 and JSA47 showed resistant; nine genotypes showed moderately resistant and four genotypes showed moderately susceptible reaction. In multilocation trials, 15 genotypes were evaluated and it was revealed that four genotypes viz., BWR 133, IPA 9F, IPA 234 and ICP 8863 showed resistant reaction; four genotypes viz., BDN 2001-9, PT03–142, IPA 5–3 and MA 3 showed moderately resistant and four genotypes showed moderately susceptible reaction. In promising entries, 50 genotypes were screened against Fusarium wilt, 34 genotypes showed resistant reaction; 12 genotypes showed moderately resistant reaction and BRG-1 showed moderately susceptible reaction.
