Evaluation of Advanced Peanut Breeding Lines for Resistance to Late Leaf Spot and Rust uri icon

abstract

  • Peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.) in India are grown in 6.7 million ha with a totalproduction of 6.5 million t and an average productivity of <1 t/ha. The rainyseason (June/July- Oct/Nov) is the main cropping season for peanut where thecrop is grown generally under rainfed conditions. Rainy season productivity (0.8t/ha) is much lower than that of the postrainy season. Late leaf spot (LLS) causedby Phaeoisariopsis personata
