SUGARCANE GENOTYPES WITH DURABLE RESISTANCE TO WHIP-SMUTS.V. Nalawade, D.V. Indi and S.M. Pawar
Screening sugarcane genotypes for smut resistance under artificial inoculation conditions with smut pathogen is being carried out from last 42 years at Central Sugarcane Research Station, Padegaon. At present, the centre has a collection of 47 genotypes which have shown absolute resistance to whip smut disease. Out of 47 genotypes, 23 genotypes are found to be resistant to whip smut under artificial inoculation condition for at least last 10 years. These resistant genotypes could be of immense utility to Sugarcane breeders for their incorporation in breeding programme for smut resistance.
