Abstract

Seventeen newly developed QPM inbred lines were screened against Maydish Leaf Blight and Charcol rot at two locations. Inbreds DQL 2015 and DQL 2071 were found as resistant for MLB and moderately resistant to charcoal rot. These lines can also be used in disease resistance breeding programme after the confirmation of resistance in one or more seasons.
