Lentil germplasm has been evaluated against a number of diseases and insect pests, and
also for morphological and yield traits. Donors have been identified against all the major
diseases and some of these are resistant to two to three diseases. There is a need to screen
still larger number of germplasm accessions against insect pests and abiotic stresses. Exotic
lines may be used to transfer the bold seed character to the indigenous cultivars.
Keywords: Lens culinaris, gennplasm, stress resistance.
