Evaluation of capsicum genotypes for resistance to powdery mildew under protected cultivation



An experiment was conducted on evaluation of capsicum genotypesfor resistance to powdery mildew caused by Leveillula taurica underprotected cultivation at Hi-tech Horticulture Unit, Saidapur Farm,University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad, Karnataka during theyear 2015-16 under protected cultivation. Results revealed that, amongfourteen genotypes screened, none of them were found to be immune,highly resistant and resistant. Three genotypes were found to bemoderately resistant viz., Bachata, Inspiration and CapsicumPurple.While four genotypes were found to be moderately susceptibleand seven were highly susceptible. These different reactions may bedue to genetic diversity exist among genotypes
