Abstract

One hundred and twenty six Recombinant Inbred Lines (RILs) derived from a cross ICCV-2
x JG 62 along with six checks were evaluated for wilt resistance under unprotected natural
infestation. The genotypes were classified as highly resistant, moderately resistant, intermediate,
susceptible and highly susceptible based on per cent plants wilted. Some of genotypes showed
high resistance to Fusarium wilt. The per cent plants wilted in different lines ranged from O to
100 per cent. A total of 45, 31, 25, 11 and 20 genotypes fell into highly resistant, moderately
resistant, intermediate, susceptible and highly susceptible classes respectively. Less proportion
of highly resistant genotypes were observed and it might be due to the fact that the wilt resistance
was governed by recessive alleles
