Abstract:
An experiment was conducted under natural epiphytotic conditions with an aim to evaluate eighteen genotypes against three major diseases of finger millet i.e. blast, foot rot and brown spot diseases at Centre For Pulses Research (CPR), Berhampur, Odisha during Kharif 2016. In case of blast disease, genotypes were screened for leaf blast at seedling stage where as at dough stage they were evaluated for neck and finger blast. Leaf blast infection was found to be less than 2% of leaf area in the genotype BR 14-3 and VL 352 and maximum infection to the extent of 25% in test entry TNEC 1281. Neck blast infection ranged from 9.29 to 66.60% while in case of finger blast the range of infection was 16.33 to 75.37%. Similarly the range of foot rot disease infection was from 0.00 to 23.64% and six genotypes namely GPU 67, VR 1094, BR 14-3, VL 352, KOPM 942 and PR 202 stand out to be immune and no resistance was noticed in any of the genotypes tested against brown spot disease.
