ABSTRACT

Sixty genotypes of okra along with pusa sawani as susceptible check were screened for YVMV resistance under field conditions.  Per cent disease incidence and coefficient of infection were calculated for all the genotypes. Per cent disease incidence ranged from 10.0 to 100.0, where as coefficient of infection varies from 5.0 to 100.0. Out of 60 genotypes screened, seven genotypes were resistant (MHO -10, MHO -24, MHO -30, KRCO -3, KRCO -10, KRCO -15 and KRCO-28). Fifteen genotypes  were moderately resistant(MHO-1, MHO-4 , MHO-6, MHO -13, MHO -14, MHO-16, MHO -21, MHO -27, KRCO-13, KRCO -16, KRCO -18, KRCO -19, KRCO-21, KRCO-23, KRCO-30) and  sixteen genotypes  were moderately susceptible(MHO -12, MHO -18, MHO -20, MHO -22, MHO -26, MHO -29, KRCO-1, KRCO -4, KRCO -5, KRCO -7, KRCO -8, KRCO -9, KRCO -20, KRCO-22, KRCO-27, KRCO-29).Thirteen genotypes were found to be susceptible (MHO-2, MHO-3 , MHO -6 , MHO -7, MHO -8, MHO -9, MHO -11, MHO -15 , MHO -22 ,MHO -25 ,KRCO -12 , KRCO -14 , KRCO-24 , KRCO-26) and nine were highly susceptible (MHO -5, MHO -17, MHO -19, MHO -28, KRCO -2, KRCO -6 , KRCO -11, KRCO -17, KRCO-25) .Resistant  genotypes identified in the present study can be utilized further YVMV resistance breeding programme.
