Genomic diversity among sorghum genotypes with resistance to sorghum shoot fly, Atherigona soccata uri icon

abstract

  • Host plant resistance is one of the important components for management of sorghum shoot fly, Atherigonasoccata. The levels of resistance in cultivated germplasm are low to moderate, and therefore, it is important to identifysorghum genotypes with diverse mechanisms of resistance based on physico-chemical and or molecular markers. Weassessed the genetic diversity of 15 sorghum genotypes with different levels of resistance/susceptibility to shoot fly, A.soccata using 93 sorghum simple sequence repeat (SSR) primer pairs and simultaneously characterized for 15morpho-biochemical traits associated with shoot fly resistance
