Molecular analysis of powdery mildew (Erysiphe polygoni DC) resistance in black gram (Vigna mungo L. Hepper)

Published on

Black gram (Vigna mungo L. Hopper)) is a major pulse
crop grown in tropical and sub tropical Asian countries.
In India it covers an area of 3.17 m. ha, with annual
production of 1.33 mt and average productivity of 419
kg/ha. [1]. Over the years the trend in its production
and productivity has shown a decline in the country.
Amongst different biotic and abiotic factors impact of
powdery mildew (Erysiphe polygoni DC) disease might
be the major constraints in its production causing 20-
40 per cent yield losses in black gram [2]. Host plant
resistance (HPR) is the most effective means to over
come this.
