pigeonpea, causing considerable yield losses to the crop. Various aspects relating to these
diseases; i.e. mode of transmission, pathogenic races, genetics, screening for resistance,
breeding methodology and disease control measures using cultural practices and resistant
varieties have been reviewed. Latest information of significant use to the geniticists,
breeders and plant pathologists, particularly for development of resistant varieties has been
compiled.
