Abstract:

Sesame, (Sesamum indicum L.), is one of the world’s ancient important oilseed crop cultivated in more than 55 countries of the world belonging to the family Pedaliaceae and native of India. Sesame cultivars / varieties presently under cultivation do not posses proven field resistance or tolerance and majority of them are more or less prone to the leaf blight disease (A. sesami). Thus, the present study was under taken with an aim to identify the resistance sources in the cultivars for further exploitation in resistance breeding programme. None of the sesame entry was found immune or resistant or highly susceptible to the disease. However, the eight entries viz., MT-11-1-13, RT-369, JLS-606-7-2, DS-7, RT-370, TKG-22(NC), DS-26 and DS-334 during Kharif 2014-15 and during Kharif 2016-17 fifteen entries DS-44, TKG-478, RT-379, MT-2014-57, DS-45, JLS-710, DS-46, AT-338, GT-10(NC), VS-10-99, MT-2014-12, AT-345, MT-2014-14, RT-378 and MT-35(ZC-1) were found tolerant to the disease and rest of the test entries showed susceptible to highly susceptible reactions.
