Abstract:

A total of thirty three finger millet genotypes were screened to identify the sources of resistance against blast, foot rot and brown spot diseases at Centre for Pulses Research (CPR), Berhampur, Odisha during Kharif 2017 under natural field condition. Among 33 genotypes evaluated, none of the genotypes were found resistant for blast disease as well as for brown spot disease however only VR 1101 expressed as moderately resistant for leaf blast. For neck blast the disease incidence ranged from 17.8 % (PR 1511) to 66.0 % (PRS 38) where as it was 19.7 % (GPU 96) to 67.6 % (TNEC 1292) in case of finger blast as compared to 97.0 % (neck blast) and 98.8 % (finger blast) infection, respectively in susceptible check VR 708. In case of for foot rot disease, resistance was observed in nine genotypes namely WN 585, OEB 601, VR 1101, PR 1511, OEB 602, VL 389, GMB, VL 352 and PR 202. Our research findings led to identification of two genotypes namely VL 389 and GPU 96 out of thirty three genotypes as resistant to three major diseases i.e. blast, foot rot and brown spot.
