Abstract

Three mulberry genotypes viz., S13, M5 and Berhampur local commonly grown by sericulture
farmers of Khammam district of Andhra Pradesh were tested for their relative resistance to leaf
spot disease caused by Botryodiplodia theobromae. Of the three genotypes evalnated S13 variety
was found resistant, M5 variety was moderately resistant and Berhampur local was highly
susceptible to the disease. Leaf-spot disease of mulberry was found to be more prevalent in rainy
season than in summer and winter ones

Keywords
