Abstract:
Cluster bean has become popular not only for consumption as vegetable but also as good source of useful industrial “Guar gum”. Cluster bean commonly recognized as a summer, annual, drought-tolerant, well adapted to arid and semi-arid climates with hot temperatures legume crop. It can grow in sub humid conditions, Total twenty four genotypes were screened. Among different genotypes, 18 were found moderately resistant whereas 6 were moderately susceptible towards A. blight of Cluster bean. No genotype was found immune, HR, S and HS against disease. The maximum yield (14.58 q/ha) of guar crop was obtained with the genotype HG 563. The resistant varieties are cheapest source to manage this disease so that more entries should be screened out to find out resistant or immune lines of Cluster bean.
