Twenty six promising safflower entries including rour checks were screened for their reaction to aphid. Results revealed that, seven entries viz. PI-2457, PI-199932, PI-306934, PI-306983, PI-220283, PI-77 and N-1536 recorded the foliage drying grade-1 showing highly tolerant reaction to aphid. Among the rest of the entries, seven entries (PI-35, JLSF-88, JLSF-I03, SSF-3, SSF-40, SSF-17 and SSF-31) were grouped under tolerant category and eleven entries (BLY-652, JLSF-93, JLSF-98, NS-I021-1, JSI-7, No. 16, PI-193475, B-69, Bhima, A-1 and 83) under moderately tolerant category.
