Abstract:

Finger millet [Eleusine coracana (L.) Gaertn.], sub-species coracana, belongs to the family poaceae. Among the several production constraints, blast (neck and finger blast) caused by the fungus Pyricularia grisea (Cooke) affects different aerial parts of the plant at all plant growth stages. The 360 F4, F5 and F6 RILs derived from the cross PR 202 × GPU 48 were screened for blast disease incidence. Analysis of variance revealed highly significant mean squares attributable to ‘RILs’ and ‘check varieties’ for both neck blast and finger blast incidence among F4, F5 and F6 generations. The observed range was higher for both neck and finger blast in F4, F5 and F6generations. Low and moderate GCV were observed for neck and finger blast respectively, in F4 generation, however high GCV and PCV were observed for neck and finger blast in F5 and F6 generation. Few RILs were identified which are moderately resistant to neck and finger blast disease.
