Abstract

Dual resistance against powdery mildew and yellow mosaic virus in greengram.

Abstract

A total of 82 green gram genotypes were screened against powdery mildew (Erysiphe polygoni) and yellow mosaic virus (MYMV) by growing susceptible rows of Phule M-2 (powdery mildew infector) and Kopergaon-1 (yellow mosaic virus infector) in Rahuri, Maharashtra, India, during the 2005/06 and 2006/07 kharif seasons. The green gram genotypes Vaibhav, BPMR-145, TARM-18, Phule M-2003-3, Phule M-2002-13, Phule M-2002-17, Phule M-2001-3 and Phule M-2001-5 exhibited combined resistance against powdery mildew and yellow mosaic virus.
