Studies on inheritance of resistance and allelic relationships for strain 2 of pigeonpea sterility mosaic pathogen uri icon

abstract

  • Inheritance of resistance and allelic relationships were studied in three resistant pigeonpea sources for strain 2 of sterility mosaic pathogen. The resistant genotypes (ICP 7035, ICP 7349 and ICP 8850) were crossed with susceptible genotypes (BDN1 and LRG30) to determine the inheritance of resistance. The resistant and susceptible genotypes were also crossed among themselves to obtain information on their allelic relationships. Parents, F1 and F2 generations were sown in pots and screened using infector-hedge technique. Observations in parents, F1 and F2 generations, indicated dominance of resistance in certain crosses and the dominance of susceptibility in others. Disease reaction appeared to be governed by two independent non-allelic genes, with at least three multiple alleles, at one of the loci
