The International Pearl Millet Smut Nursery(IPMSN) in one of the component nurseries in the International Pearl Millet Disease Resistance Testing Program (IPMDRTP) cooridinated by the ICRISAT Pearl Millet Improvement Program.

In 1978 the IPMSN was sent to cooperators at 12 locations in 7 countries and the results were received from 6 locations in 4 countries. Ten of the 34 entries were identified promising with across locations mean smut severity of not more than 10 percent. In 1979 the 37 entry IPMSN was sent to cooperators at 6 locations in 5 countries and the were identified as highly resistant with across IPMSN was sent to cooperators at 8 locations in 4 countries and results received from 6 locations in 3 countries are presented in this report
