Abstract:
Wilt of Pigeonpea is a very destructive disease caused by fungus <em>Fusarium udum</em> Butler. In India, Pigeonpea crop suffers a great loss due to this disease. The use of resistant variety is one of the best methods of disease management. Therefore, studies were planned to search out the genotypes against <em>Fusarium</em> wilt through sick plot technique. Out of 130 genotypes screened, ten genotypes (ICP-8859, ICP8860, ICP8862, ICP8863, ICP89049 ICP12731, BWR254, BWR370, AWR74/15 and Banda Palera were found resistant, 22 moderately resistant, 26 tolerant, 30 moderately susceptible and 42 were highly susceptible to <em>Fusarium </em>wilt.
