Abstract

In India, where vegetarianism is the norm, mungbean [Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek] is a significant source of proteins, minerals, and vitamins. One of the most significant fungal diseases, Cercospora leaf spot caused by Cercospora canescens, appears every year with varying intensity and significantly reduces yield. The objective of the current studies was to test 100 genotypes for resistance to Cercospora canescens in vivo at the Student's Instructional Farm (S.I.F.) A.N.D.U.A. &T., Kumarganj, Ayodhya. According to the rating system, which is based on the severity of the disease, different genotypes were assigned to different grades. Out of total test entries 13 genotypes LGG 607, PM 14- 3, AKM 12-28, VGG 16- 036, Pusa 171, Pusa 172, RMG 1092, RMG 1097, JLM 302-46, IPM 312-19, IPM 312-20, MGG 387 were found free from infection, 18 genotypes SKNM 1502, COGG 13-39 , PM 1511, Type 44, , DDG3, VGG 05-006, TRAM 1, Asha ,BPMR 145, IPM 02-14, TMB -36, CO -6, BMU, MH 805, MH 2-15, MH 421, MVSKAN, Pusa 0672, were found highly resistant 14 genotypes were noticed susceptible and only 3 genotypes were recorded highly susceptible.
