Distribution of BCMV strains in Kashmir valley and identification of resistant sources of Phaseolus vulgaris

Published on

Extensive survey of 100 commercial bean growing areas of
Kashmir was conducted during kharif 2009 and 2010
indicated only 13 locations to be free from Bean Common
Mosaic Virus (BCMV) disease. The disease incidence ranged
from 0.50 to 85%. The maximum disease incidence was
recorded in Srinagar followed by districts Anantnag and
Bandipora, respectively. Confirmation of the association
of BCMV with each isolate was made by mechanical
transmission, DAC-ELISA and RT-PCR. Evaluation of
eighty-five accessions of common bean of diverse origin
under controlled glass-house conditions identified R-40,
R-155, R-3, B-6, Pencil white, SKAU-B-02, SKAU-B-01,
Pointed lady, TO, P1207262, TU, KRC-5, R-14, Jubila,
Contender and Monroe accessions to be resistance against
all the five strains (NL-1, NL-1n, NL-7, NL-7n and NL-4) of
BCMV prevalent in Kashmir.
