Grain mold resistance breeding in sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) at ICRISAT and in Indian national programs has focused on developing varieties, restorer lines, and hybrid seed parents utilizing resistance from germplasm lines of diverse geographical origin. During the past few years, ICRISAT has developed a large number of high-yielding, grain mold resistant B-llnes using pedigree breeding with single- and three-way crosses and selecting the progenies under high disease pressure In field screenings (Reddy et al. 2000). Resistance stability of some selected elite B-llnes was tested through a collaborative Sorghum Grain Mold Resistance Stability Nursery (SGMRSN) established In 2002. The results of trials conducted at diverse locations In India are presented.
