Screening of Groundnut Genotypes for Resistance to Kalahasti Malady and Late Leaf Spot Diseases uri icon


  • During 1995-97, 42 genotypes were screened for resistance to kalahasti malady (Tylenchorhynchus brevilineatus) and late leaf spot (Mycosphaerella berkeleyi). Late leaf spot severity was recorded 90 days after sowing on a 1-9 scale while plants were scored for T. brevilineatus infestation at maturity on a 1-5 scale. Only 29 genotypes showed a lower infestation score than the control for T. brevilineatus and all were susceptible to late leaf spot
