Registration of Rust and Late Leaf Spot Resistant Peanut Germplasm Lines uri icon

abstract

  • Four peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.) germplasm lines, ICGV 99001 (Reg. no. GP-118, PI 631072), ICGV 99003 (Reg. no. GP-119, PI 631073), ICGV 99004 (Reg. no. GP-120, PI 631074), and ICGV 99005 (Reg. no. GP-121, PI 631075), were released in 2001 by the Plant Materials Identification Committee of International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), Patancheru, AP, India, for their resistance to foliar fungal diseases. These lines were derived from A. hypogaea and wild Arachis species crosses. ICGV#99001 and 99004 belong to subsp. fastigiata var. vulgaris while ICGV#99003 and 99005 belong to subsp. hypogaea var. hypogaea. ICGV# 99001 and 99004 possess resistance to late leaf spot (LLS) ((caused by Phaeoisariopsis personata (Berk. & Curt.) v. Arx = Cercosporidium personatum (Berk. & Curt.) Deighton), and ICGV# 99003 and 99005 have resistance to rust (caused by Puccinia arachidis Speg.)
