Abstract

The pooled data of the experiment revealed that inoculated plots showed high incidence
of turcicum leaf blight in AMC1 (39.23%), AMC2 (35.46%), Manjari composite (33.61%) and
Kargil 633 (31.42%). The inoculated plots recorded lowest grain yield and exhibited significant
losses in the grain yield of AMC1 (18.77%), AMC2 (15.45%), Manjari composite (13.81%) and
Kargil633 (10.50%).
