Abstract:

Smut caused by Moesziomyces penicillariae is one of the major pearl millet diseases in India. in order to find out cost effective, economical and ecofriendly method to manage the disease attempts were made to identify the resistant sources of smut by germplasm screening. The field screening involved the artificial inoculation of the germplasm. Observations on smut severity were recorded 15-20 days after inoculation using smut severity (%) rating scale. Amongst 239 pearl millet genotypes comprising of initial varietal trial (IVT), advanced varietal trial (AVT) and final yield trial (FYT) were screened for their reaction to smut and identification of the resistant source against pearl millet smut. It was observed that 52 genotypes were completely free from smut, 93 genotypes showed less than 10 per cent smut severity, 66 genotypes showed 10-25 per cent smut severity and 27 genotypes showed more than 25 per cent smut severity.
