Sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) is an important edible oilseed crop in the country next to groundnut and soybean. One of the major factors for reduction in area of the crop is being attributed to the occurrence of fungal and viral diseases like sunflower necrosis disease (SND) and Sunflower leaf curl virus (SuLCV) resulting in yield loss in most of the sunflower growing regions of Southern and Northern India. In Karnataka, SuLCV has been reported to occur in almost all the popular sunflower hybrids grown during kharif, rabi and summer seasons with varied intensity. Cultivation of resistant varieties is the most economical way of managing virus diseases of plants as the control of vector borne virus diseases is very difficult to contemplate. 37 germplasm lines of sunflower were evaluated against SuLCV disease in field condition. Of thirty seven germplasm lines screened, four hybrids namely RSFH-1887, DRSH-1, RSFH-10-600 and NSFH-1009 recorded moderately resistant reaction (5.1-10%). Further, eight hybrids recorded moderately susceptible reaction (10.1-25%) viz., NDSH-11, SVSH-478, KBSH-70, LSFH-234, KBSH-1, Sunshine, PAC-339 and NDSH-12.

Keywords: Sunflower, SuLCV, Begomovirus.
