INHERITANCE OF RESISTANCE TO FUSARIUM WILT IN PIGEONPEA (CAJANUS CAJAN (L.) MILLSP.)

Published on

The inheritance of resistance in pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan (L.) Millsp.) to fusarium wilt
(Fusarium udum Butler) was studied in crosses between a resistant line ICP 8863 and two
susceptible (lCP 2376 and LRG 30) pigeonpea lines. The parents, Fl, F2 and backcross
populations were screened for resistance to F. udum in a wilt-sick nursery at the ICRISAT
Center. Resistance to fusarium wilt is controlled by a single recessive gene, which has been
designated as pwr1.
