Abstract:
Mungbean (Vigna radiata L.) is also known as mung, moong, mungo. In India it is third most important pulse crop after chickpea and pigeonpea. Mungbean is an important short duration grain legume which is grown in different parts of the country, for grain and green manuring. It is an outstanding source of easily digestible proteins with low flatulence, which balances the staple rice diet in Asia. The mungbean crop is infected by a large number of pathogens such as fungi, bacteria, virus and nematodes in which mungbean Cercospora leaf spot causes significantly losses. Use of resistant genotypes is the best method of avoiding the occurrence of the disease. Keeping this point in view, one hundred genotypes of mungbean were tested for the resistance against Cercospora leaf spot during Kharif 2019 in field condition. Out of total test entries screened 2 genotypes viz., SKNM 1502, COGG 13-39 were found highly resistant.
