Abstract: The present investigations regarding the identification of resistance resources of bacterial blight in common bean were conducted in the SKUAST-K during 2009 to 2010. Study showed that the infected seeds harbour the pathogen beyond the next sowing season. The viability of pathogen on infected seeds decreased with time. Out of forty one bean genotypes screened against the pathogen under conditions of artificial inoculation, 2 were categorised as resistant, 2 as moderately resistant, 21 as moderately susceptible, whereas 13 genotypes were found susceptible and only three genotypes were highly susceptible.
