Abstract:

Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Miller) cultivars/varieties were evaluated to identify the source of resistance against wilt caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lycopersici. Therefore, efforts were made to evaluate the different varieties/cultivars of tomato for screening against Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lycopersici in vivo (poly bag culture) condition. Among seven varieties tested for screening in vivo, two varieties i.e., US 440 and Master F1 found tolerant with mean disease incidence in the range of 7.14% to 8.92% respectively. Jigar variety was found moderately susceptible with mean disease incidence of 18.57%. Two varieties S-22, and Pusa hybrid-4 were found susceptible with mean disease incidence of 33.73% and 23.80%. Whereas, PKM-1 (55.95%) and Pusa rubi (62.69 %) were found highly susceptible to wilt disease.
