Objectives

  • To screen out tolerant/susceptible genotypes from newly selected mulberry cultivars against powdery mildew caused by Phyllactinia corylea.

Important findings

None of newly selected mulberry variety was found tolerant to powdery mildew caused byPhyllactinia corylea. However, there exist highly significant differences in their tolerance/susceptibility. Genotype SKM-19 and SKM-7 with 1.09 and 2.73% mean disease intensity showed tolerant reaction.
