Abstract

Six promising short duration pigeon pea genotypes were screened for their reaction against Maruca vitrata under field, greenhouse and laboratory conditions in Andhra Pradesh, India. Field and greenhouse experiments showed significantly lower pod damage by M. vitrata in ICPL 98003 and ICPL 98008 compared to the susceptible genotype ICPL 88034. In addition, greenhouse and laboratory studies showed less consumption of food and reduced larval and pupal weights of M. vitrata when reared on resistant genotypes such as ICPL 98003 and ICPL 98008.
