Abstract:

(Cucumis sativus L.) is one of the oldest cultivated vegetable crops belongs to the family cucurbitaceous with 7 pairs of chromosomes and several distinct morphological features stands apart from other species with 12 pairs of chromosomes which are indigenous to tropical Africa. Now a day’s powdery mildew has become a major disease in cucumber, since there is no detailed quantitative information on effective management of the disease resistance genotypes plays an important role to combat against pathogen. This can be used as one of the strategy for the management of the disease. Twenty three genotypes were screened against E. cichoracearum under natural epiphytotic conditions in the field to identify the resistance source during late kharif 2016 none were found to be immune or and resistant. However, fifteen genotypes Viz., Swathi, BSS-949, JK-special, Mahy Sylvia, Malini, Shirakawa, Yummy, Kareena, Green long, Ajeeth-99, White long, Encounter-962, Shalini, Ranebennur local and Sarpan hybrid were found to be moderately resistant with five grade and five genotypes Viz., Chetak, Gullakai, Khushi, Sribasava and Harini were found to be moderately susceptible with seven grade and Mangalore local, Dharwad green and chitra showed highly susceptible reaction with maximum reaction of nine grade.
