SCREENING OF CAULIFLOWER GERMPLASM AGAINST SCLEROTINIA ROT

Published on

The technique used in screening of different lines/varieties involved placing of equal bits
of infected leaves of the susceptible variety on the host plant along with a drop of water.
The technique was modified byfirst initiating the infection on a known susceptible variety,
Pusa Snowball K-1, in order to maintain equal inoculation load. Sixty nine varieties/lines
were screened against Sclerotinia rot. Winter cauliflowers, namely, Janavon, EC 103576,
EWAWH and EC 177283 were found to be resistant and can be used as donors in resistance
breeding.
