Abstract:

Fusarium wilt is major disease in Central India, the major lentil growing region of country. The disease is soil borne causing huge loss and development of wilt resistant varieties is most effective means of controlling this disease. Highly resistant sources of wilt in lentil have not been reported from the Indian lentil breeding programme. Ninety three lentil accessions including twelve varieties, six ICARDA germplasm lines and seventy five advanced breeding lines were evaluated in field and controlled conditions against wilt. Field screening was carried out at RKVV, Sehore (hot spot) using infector row technique. Based on field and controlled condition screening- IG 69549 and IG 70238 have been identified as highly resistant genotypes. These can be used in hybridization programme for wilt resistance breeding and studying the inheritance of wilt resistance in lentil.
