Evaluation of inbred lines for Anthracnose resistance in chilli

BV Tembhurne, Umesh Babu BS and DS Aswathanarayana
Chilli (Capsicum annuum L.) is one of the most economically important vegetable crops in the world. Among different biotic constraints, anthracnose disease is the major limiting factor affecting yield and production of chilli crop not only in India but also worldwide. Therefore, thirty inbred lines with different genetic background were selected and evaluated for anthracnose (Colletrotrichum capsici) (Family Glomerellaceae) resistance in chilli. The experiments were conducted in field as well as laboratory conditions and repeated two years to confirm the resistant genotypes during 2016-2017 and 2017-2018. The genotypes, PBC-80 and G-4-L, registered resistance and ACB1-L and HDC-75-1 moderately resistance to anthracnose disease in chilli. Therefore, these genotypes can be used as donors for anthracnose disease resistance breeding programme in future. This study proposed identification of anthracnose resistance sources for providing more opportunity to the breeder to improve the fruit quality and enhance the yield.
