An Experiment was conducted in the field at Agricultural Research Station, Peddapuram, Andhra Pradesh, India with the objective of evaluating 10 maize inbred lines against Banded Leaf And Sheath Blight disease caused by Rhizoctonia solani f.sp. sasakii during Rainy season under Natural Conditions consequently for three years 2018, 2019 and 2020. The trial has been conducted to find out the occurrence of disease and/or any new disease on a set of maize inbred lines (10 lines) susceptible to different diseases. Disease score was taken at weekly intervals starts from 37 DAS to 93 DAS by using Standard disease Rating Scale of 1to 9. Among these ten inbreeds (CM 400, CM 500, CM 501, CM 600, BML 6, BML 7, SURYA, Early Composite, LM 14 and IIMRSBTPOOL) CM 500 showed moderately resistant reaction and BML 7 showed susceptible reaction to the BLSB, none of the inbred showed resistant reaction and remaining inbred lines expressed moderately susceptible reaction to the disease.
