Fourteen genotypes of lentils were screened during rabi seasons (2006–07, 2007–08 and 2008–09) in Fusarium wilt sick plot the Department at Plant Pathology, Birsa Agricultural University, Ranchi. The initial Fusarium wilt symptoms appeared on 25th day after sowing in susceptible check ‘L 9–12’. Only three genotypes ‘VL 133’, ‘LL 985’ and ‘VL 515’ representing small seeded, large seeded and extra large seeded groups, respectively were identified as resistant to Fusarium wilt, which could be exploited in breeding programme for varietal improvement. The genotype ‘L 688’ could be recommended as an alternative susceptible check as it had more wilted plants than the present susceptible genotype ‘L 9–12’.
