Abstract:

Among four isolates of Moesziomyces penicillariae the incitant of pearl millet smut, cultural, morphological and pathogenic variability was studied. The isolates were collected from four different pearl millet growing regions of India. Among the four isolates no variation was observed in size of spore balls but significant variation was observed in their germination percentage. Out of the six different media used, potato dextrose agar medium enriched with 50 g pearl millet grain and 20 g sucrose supported maximum growth of the fungus and least growth was observed in oat meal agar. In order to elucidate pathogenic variability pathogenic test was performed by artificial inoculation and it was observed that the highest smut severity was recorded in HHB67(Improved) followed by HHB226 and minimum smut severity was recorded in HHB197 followed by RHB177.Based on the study it was concluded that the isolates differ in virulence and isolate Mp2 was the most virulent.
