Abstract:

Three field trials were conducted during Kharif 2014 at experimental area of AICRP on Small millet, College of Agriculture, Rewa (M.P.) to screen the little millet germplasm against grain smut under field conditions. Six pre- released and released cultivars namely DhLTMV 36-3, Kadiri 1, OLM 203, KOPLM 53, GPUL 1 and GPUL 2 were free from grain smut and seven namely BL 8, TNPSU 171, TNPSU 170, BL 6, DhLTMV 10-2, TNAU 160 & BL 41-3 were found resistant. Four entries namely OLM 203, TNAU 163, TNAU 176 and TNAU 178 were free and RLM 208 was resistant to grain smut in Donor Screening Nursery. Fourteen landraces namely RLM 175, RLM 177, RLM 179, RLM 182, RLM 186, RLM 189, RLM RLM 203, RLM 204, RLM 211, RLM 225, RLM 226, RLM 228, RLM 231 & RLM 232 were free from grain smut and 28 were resistant having up to 5.0 susceptibility index. Among, 100 landraces of little millet, 13.9% landraces were highly resistant, 27.7% were resistant, 41.6% moderately resistant, 11.9% susceptible and 4.9% highly susceptible to grain smut. Fourteen landraces namely RLM 175, RLM 177, RLM 179, RLM 182, RLM 186, RLM 189, RLM RLM 203, RLM 204, RLM 211, RLM 225, RLM 226,RLM 228, RLM 231 & RLM 232 were completely free from grain smut.
