Abstract:

An experiment was carried out on screening of ridge gourd genotypes against cucumber mosaic virus (CMV). This study was conducted during 2011 – 2012. Thirty five ridge gourd genotypes obtained upon mechanical (artificial) inoculation were evaluated for CMV disease severity by using DAS –ELISA method. Among the thirty five ridge gourd genotypes, 12 genotypes of IC 92685 (0.139), IC 385912 (0.140), IC 3922334 (0.152), Coimbatore local (0.141), UP variety local (var:100) (0.138), SG 030 (0.193), K 090 (0.183), IC 413592 (0.124), IC 373361 (0.126), IC 362481 (0.149), IC 413577 (0.120) and LA 1 (0.173) had lesser OD values than control cowpea sample (0.613) and were found to be negative for CMV and considered as phenotypically tolerance. These genotypes were completely symptomless during mechanical inoculation with leaves showing CMV symptoms.
