Objectives

  • To screen out tolerant/susceptible genotypes from newly selected mulberry cultivars (SKM4, SKM10, SKM19, SKM20, SKM25, SKM26, SKM27, SKM29, SKM30, SKM31, SKM33, SKM35, SKM36, SKM44, SKM45, & SKM48) against leaf spot disease caused byPhloeospora maculans.

Important findings

All the newly selected genotypes were found prone to leaf spot disease, but with the varying degree of tolerance.  Genotypes SKM40, SKM45 & SKM33 with 7.90, 8.50 and 10.28% disease intensity respectively showed tolerant reaction.
