Abstract:

Banded Leaf and Sheath Blight (BLSB) disease caused by Rhizoctonia solani f. sp. sasakii Exner was studied in 22 inbred lines and 12 hybrids at the Regional Agricultural Research Station farm, Lam, Guntur, during rabi 2014-15 for evaluating resistance. Out of 22 inbred lines, PFSR9-2 had shown resistant reaction whereas PFSR6-1, PFSR6-2 and PFSR18 were found to be moderately resistant to BLSB disease. In case of hybrids, DHM 117 is the only hybrid which had shown resistant reaction, DKC9145, DKC9133 and KMH3110 were found moderately resistant and the remaining have shown susceptible reaction. The laboratory and field evaluation data corresponded in actual disease rating as well as in terms of categorization in to resistant, moderately resistant, susceptible and highly susceptible.
